    Preventing hatch flex?

    My rear window flexes a ton on the low lows, but it's about the only thing that flexes on those kind of notes (20-25Hz). Is there anyway I can prevent it from flopping around? Not only is it terribly noisy but it must be leaking a lot of air as well. I was thinking about getting some thin weatherstripping and putting it around the border of the window but I would like to hear some of your guys' opinions/suggestions before I do anything. FYI the picture in my sig is what it looks like on the lows

    I almost never open my hatch window, though that is not to say I want to permanently have it attached. I was also thinking of using CCF and spraying it with an adhesive on one side and attaching it there
