    Does it have a sunroof? How does the door weatherstripping look?

    Sunroof yes ! I have rodded the drains with weed whip and they seem to drian fine. Door seals seem ok also. I have discovered the water streaming down behind the drivers kickplate electricals with hose running on top of car. Don't know how it gets in but I will try it again with hose on windshiels to bypass moonroof

    My Bad, I forgot to mention the windshield was replaced 3 yrs ago according to the prev owner from whom I purchased the car.
    Maybe this weekend I'll have some opportunity to investigate further

    I would have someone sit inside or you sit inside and have somebody hose the area down real good.
