Default targa wind noise/turbulance

Crazy wind noise only on the passenger side. No water leaks. The top is fully recon'd by Targa Dan. The front and rear seals were replaced, the front 2x's.
I know this is not new, I have posted this before. I need to find someone who has dealt with this and had success. Any advice or recommendation is welcome.
Thanks.

From what I have been reading the seal installation is critical to prevent wind noise. This thread shows the areas to check to alleviate wind/water leaks: https://rennlist.com/forums/964-foru...anently-2.html

Wind noise from the PS front or back?

If it’s at the front I would start by looking at the front of the roof where it meets the windshield frame. If that is standing proud you’ll get a lot of wind rush. Maybe adjust/tighten the roller latch on that side. If you pull the locking toggle handle off you’ll be able to see two socket head bolts in that same area where the handle attaches. Loosen those, push the latch assembly up a bit, and retighten. That will clamp the top down more across the front and above the quarterlights.
