'67 Overlander leaky windows, help!!

I have a 67 Overlander that has a few leaky windows. The window to the right of the door is the primary culprit. When it rains, the bottom trays that form the window frame fill up with water. I use parrbond to run a line of sealant across the top of the window where it meets the skin seam. I also have installed new gaskets a couple of years ago. Any suggestions would be appreciated. My big window by the fold out table also leaks a little bit as well.....and it also accumulates water in the bottom tray. Thanks for all your help!!

Sean

Sean, if your window at the door is the 2 piece, top opens bottom is solid, it leaks where the cross piece at the bottom of the opening window meets the side frame. If you run a small bead there about 1 " front to back it stopped the leak in my 67.

Thanks so much doug. I assume i should use the parrbond for this? I didnt see a seam of sealant at this location so thats why I assumed it might not be necessary. I will run a bead along the cross section and see what happens. Did your window rails fill up with water also?

I got frustrated enough to take the window apart, that's where I found the leak spot in mine. Yes they filled with water.
The front still has a small leak somewhere, I just leave it cracked open and the water runs out.
