Hows the fitment? Is it watertight? This would look pretty sick on my car unpainted with my black 6uls.

it's not watertight, but I have no carpet so I didn't care. Even in pouring rain it wasn't TOO bad. I'd put some window caulk/silicone around the rear window on the inside, and mess with the side seals until you get them the way you want them against the windows. I'm in Red Bank, not far from you if you want to check it out.

How bad is not too bad? Would silicone around the inside of the window and adjusting the weather stripping rectify the leaking issues for the most part? If so, and if you'll drop it off (I'm waiting for valve cover bolts to be delivered due to a dumbass moment), I'll buy it.

yes, window silicone around the back window should solve any leaking, and the side seals as well. I could put it back on my car on a nice day and drive it to you and drive back without a top, but it has to be on a nice day and I would need some kind of deposit through paypal before i come over, or you could come by when you put your VC back on.
