bk7794 Well the one thing that worries me is what if I can't fix it. Then I got a piece of crap on my hands. However if I can get it for a decent price then I guess it wouldn't be that bad.

But there is no common problems to go wrong? Where would I need to add some caulk?

Sniper Focus Mine leaked from hairline cracks in the seam sealer where the roof and hatch jamb meet. Before that I was chasing windmills sealing everything tail light related and the window triangles.

TerryB Same here. I have aftermarket tails and my left light drips sometimes. Nothing bad, just a little on the cargo cover. It's probably the screw hole.

Also is this a deal breaker?

My 05 zx5 did that 4 months ago when I changed my tails for aftermarket ones.
The metal screw on the side of the taillight ate the plastic washer when I put it back. Results : Water leaking. I used sillicone and now no more leak^^eheh

And I sealed the wings from the inside.

02fordsvt Mine used to leak through the moon roof and than flow down into the hatch. A simple cleaning of the seal and realignment of the moon roof fixed the problem.
