Question foam drain tray liner leak - need repair advices

Hi guys!

Last big rain some water reach the back of the seat... classic 986 story... ok
But I have a new top, new ECU with waterproof case, drains were clear and functionals(tested them), etc..
But I found the issue (almost sure).

My foam drain tray liner is not in good shape, and was not well installed at some places... not under metal part... (perhaps a previous job) I fixed some hole and reinstall the foam properly under metal parts, but the main issue is show on the picture... I did not see it before... Then I was thinking of two options:

1) Put some silicon or Permatex and do a "dirty" job to seal as I can all hole and precisely the big one... and test if it works.

2) Change all foam drain tray liners. Need to remove the top frame (which I dont know how to yet...), and all top parts, clean everything and check under, then replace the foam.

Any advices?

Thanks.

Yann

Given how important it is to keep the water out of the cabin and what a significant role those water catch/drain basins play in this I'd vote for #2.

Not sure what you can use to completely seal the damaged areas of the styrofoam material that will remain water tight forever and won't further damage the styrofoam.

While these articles aren't specific re the foam tray, they do show how to remove the top frame items.

Thank you!
Then, remove all the top not look like so complicate according this guide.

I found the Porsche ref:
986 561 805 03 Left
986 561 806 03 Right

Now let go shopping... Porsche OEM is about $170... each... sic.
