Something I had been meaning to do for some time, previously I had two layers of foam and the cables went between them, which was less than optimal.

Nice!  The notches are a great idea! I need to do this except with a vertical sliding window.

We had a huge downpour the other day, 2.36" rain in under an hour, and nothing leaked inside. So it passed that test.
