Seam Sealer Recommendation for CCV Poptop

Lovely wife and I were out this weekend, Friday night we had an all-night soaker - probably an inch over 8 hours. Perfect time to find any leaks.

Seems like we have a bit of water intrusion coming in under the windows where the seams clear and screens are sewn to the main body. Everything appeared dry above that plane.

Makes sense, you can see pinholes in the tent fabric where the screens and clears are sewn in.

What do you guys recommend for sealer? I have looked at two options -

Seam Grip WP which is not water based, takes a long time to dry, but should be bomber.

Seam Grip FC water based, fast cure.

I am concerned the "FC" is not a gap filling material, and I need to fill some gaps, the pinholes are sizeable.

Any recommendations are welcome.

Just as a suggestion - what about a bees wax/stick product - inexpensive and wax should be flexible and just a rub on/roll on product - easily replenishable - I've used it on my 2002 PH top - Amazon of course - rub it on inside and outside of seams -

Let me know it works for you -

We use Iosso Seam Sealer and 303 Fabric Guard every three years or so; both seem to work well.
