Convertible trunk Leaks! Help!

I absolutely love my car but I am tired of the trunk flooding every time it rains hard or for a long period. I have cleared the drainage tubes for the convertible top storage compartment as this is where the trunk leak is coming from and these drains are now working. It appears that water builds up in the storage compartment and then leaks into the trunk. I have ordered all of the gaskets & seals for the trunk area including the storage compartment and all of the light fixture gaskets and should have those replaced soon. The top storage compartment lid also looks to be sitting lower on the passenger side so maybe it is not sealing properly and too much water may be finding it's way into the storage compartment so it cannot drain fast enough.

Any help here is greatly appreciated!
