Silicone your mounting holes on the inside of the box. Also, you could try running a thick bead of silicone around the inside of the lid where the foam is(or was, probably better to scrape it off first). Then cover the bead with strips of garbage bag. Close the lid and the silicone conforms to the lip, forming a seal. Trick I learned working on school buses. Use it to keep dust from getting in the rear emergency door. Called "Ukrainian weather stripping," no racial slur intended, I learned it from a Ukrainian. As for dust proofing the latches, well, probably be more effort than it's worth.
