1997 Chevy 4 window leak

So far my wife and I have barely got the bus home without replacing a battery and alternator. Now we find the headliner is drenched.
Has anyone else had a leak up front? I see along the roof line where the bus top begins thereís cracking in the paint.
Iím hoping to remove the head liner and magically see day light but if I donít find any sign of where itís coming from I plan on tarring the area above the windshield before the bus top begins.
Anyone else have similar issues?

Chassis: Chevy cut-away 6-window shortie
Engine: 6.0L Gasser
The joint between the Chevy cab and bus body on mine leaked at both ends of the windshield. Basically it looked like the sun visors were leaking when I drove in the rain. I ran seam sealer along that front seam and it seems to be fixed. The foam/rubber gasket they put in doesn't seem to last the 15-16 years my bus has been around.
