Honda accord 92 cpe rain leaks

Oh man,
I have multiple leaks into the trunk of my 92 Accord Coupe. I found the biggest one, the runoff from the trunk lip would fill up the taillight
on the LR outer, and when it got half full it would leak into the trunk. OK that's one down.
Now the hard ones. I have one leak on the left (drivers) side that is slow and comes down from the curved stamped section of the car. I believe this curve is the curve of the bodywork around the lower left corner of the rear window. It is 16 inches forward of the antenna body (remove the upholstery) inside the fender above wheel housing. You have to climb into the trunk and squeeze your head in nect to the elec. antenna and look forward into the fender and above the wheel housing to see it. It drips onto the wheel housing and rolls down to leak onto the edge of the cardboard that covers the spare. This leak would be coming down inside the the left upholstery panel if I still had the panel on. It LOOKS like it should be coming from the window so I had the rear window removed and resealed at a glass shop. Still Leaking though. I removed the left rear swingout window and trim and it's not coming from there. Now I have removed the left sidde trunk upholstery, the left sided rear shoulder harness cover and the deck speakers and the upholstered panel that covers the brake light, rear deck and the brake light. I have also run a piece of duct tape from the windshield all the way back to the rear window along that drip channel on the left side to seal it from the rain jsut in case it was leakin in through there. I can't see where it is coming in and it still it leaks.
The second tuff leak in on the right side. if you look up from under the trunk there is a stiffening rib with fairly large holes in it. It also contains the trunk light. Now, all the way over to the right ahead of the trunk hinge and in the last big hole before you get to the right side upholstery a drip is coming out from that hole and falling on the trunk carpet just to the inside of the fenderwell upholstery. I can't find the source for that one either. I can't find any leaks from inside of the passenger compartment. When the rain stops I will tape up that seem like I did the left and see if that helps but i doubt it will help.
Has anyone experienced anything like this? Any ideas?
This car runs perfect and it is going to be ruined by a silly little leak.
Thanks all,
Art D

I'm going to go way out on a limb here, based on my own experiences.
Set into the roof are two removable black channels. They cover weld and sealer seams that Honda used to join the main roof panel and the two edges of the roof. With the passage of the years, the sealer cracks, usually at the rear edge of the roof seam. Water seeps into the cracks.
Pop those channels off and have a look at the state of the seams underneath. The cracks can be hard to see until you start picking away at the paint around the cracks.
Hope this helps. Leaks can be a major bitch to solve. I'm just thankful I've been able to fix all mine. So far.

Thanks T,
I sealed the outside of the drivers side roof with silver tape to see if if would stop leaking but nothing changed. I was afraid to rip those things off because I don't know how they are held on.
No, if the RIGHT hand seam is leaking is there a way for the water to get all the way over to the left?
I think I will silver tape up the right side and see if it helps.
