Waterproofing a 97ecu

To those who have 97's..what have you done to help protect the ecu from water. I was looking at mine the other day and noticed the plastic white cover doesn't seal at all around the ecu. I also noticed some surface rust around the bracket. Looking at the location it looks as though water can easily dump in from the wingtop under the hood. There isn't any type of channel along the wing or hood to move water away. I have no interest in moving it.
I was thinking of just using some heat tape and sealing it up. It seems open at the bottom so I would think sealing it up wouldn't case a venting issue.
Any options and photos of what u have done.
Thanks as always!
