Default Tip up canopy seal?

I'm just finishing the G3X install and want to get my canopy as waterproof as possible in the front area as the rain has already cost me a KN64. I understand most people use the P-type or D-type seal on the front edge to seal it, however the problem that still exists is the hinge area. I can't come up with a simple solution for a seal that will allow full motion of the canopy and still seal out the rain that is liable to seem into the cracks. Anyone have any ideas or pics of how they have sealed off this area?
