Default Sealing canopy

New to the forum, just finished a 2250 mile trip from Florida to California bringing home my, new to me, RV-6A. She’s fully IFR capable and handled the weather through Georgia and Mississippi great! Except for a leaking tip up canopy.

My question is what’s the right or best way to seal up the front lip that meets the fuselage as well as the back where is meets the hoop above our heads. Currently it has the thin white door weatherstripping you find at Home Depot to seal front doors in the jamb not working out well.
