A few meters of tapes to fill-up a few holes

Lately I read a lot of EM threads and associated articles and didn't upgraded my car except the nut and the tires that are now at 3.2 bars (46.4) while rated at 3.5 bars (50.8).

I basjoosed with some tape the spaces between the roof and the front and rear windshields (1st and 2nd pictures). I bought some transparent tape for greenhouses, ie waterproof and resisting to UV and temperature changes. As said in another thread : if it doesn't help, it shouldn't hurt

It will be rainy and sunny this week so I'll see if this tape is OK or not. If it's OK I'll use it on the roof itself (3rd picture) and a few other places.

Denis.
