Help! I have a leak in my Mustang!

So after much research on the typical leaks with a 2005 Mustang GT I came up with nothing. I looked all in the wiper cowling and at the bottom where the rubber boots are and found no trouble there. Did the water pour test, etc. Then I started where the A post meets the car and did find the leak. It actually runs inside the car on both sides where the a post meets up with the door frame. Its a slow drizzle but wets my floor pretty good. The trim that meets up with the roof of the car and the adhesive/spray foam they had from the factory seems to be the culprit.

I guess my end result question is; is there some type of foam or weatherstripping that I could get to put behind that piece of molding that meets up with the roof of my car which is where the leak is originating from? Thanks!

There's a TSB on that leak.

Here's a pdf file of the TSB - https://www.allfordmustangs.com/forum...t-07-14-06.pdf
