Porsche Crest 911SC Targa - window adjustment

I Have a '83 911SC Targa and I recently restored the roof and performed all the window adjustments in height as well as to the inside, (bottom fwd guide rail adjustment point fully outboard) so window is fully pressed against the targa seal.
Also the vent window is nicely adjusted as has a firm fit against the windshield frame.
Till a out 60-80 MPH I hardly have any noise from the window, but when I open the throttle fully around 100 MPH, the windows start to gap outboard. is this normal or do I have to make some more adjustments??

Errrrr Shane....

Ive been to Hawaii and I dont remember going more than 55mph, all the way round the Island. That was on a sports bike I hired.

Ned - there are many threads on wind noise in targas if you search. There is one guy, Dan the Targa man who is the expert. You might need a new front seal. There are a couple of porsche documents that can assist, also the bently. Good luck in fixing it. Its on my to do list.

Good luck.
Ed - Proud targa owner.

take a trip to mid-ohio sometime. not only is it a total blast to drive it's quite easy to get to go well over 100 on the backside. i know i've done it in my targa several times.

Arrow Attempt at humor fail....

... sorry, I forgot to add the sarcasm to my initial statement.

I am a Targa advocate and enjoy a brisk jaunt, preferably with the top off. Please note my corrected comments below, sarcasm as indicated in green font, and a winky emoticon for added emphasis.
