Nope...none of us have leaks!

Actually my 2 cars so far have been nice and dry. Randy pulled them apart looking for water and didn't find what he wanted. Oh darn
when i come down i will find some

... if i have to put it there myself
come look at mine 2
I think the Napa guy is upset that I found a funny quote. Kenn...just put a hose in the sunroof and turn it on...that'* what he plans on doing to me.

i dont have any huge leaks, sometimes when im driving in the rain ill feel the smallest drop of water hitting me in the face or arm....i mostly just go "what the?" and keep driving....but i think we can all agree that we have that God-forsaken trunk water channeling system...thats a real winner, if its rained or you washed the car in the past week you open the trunk and anything in it just gets soaked...and where i live at the water gets mixed with dust so its muddy to boot!

Oddly enough GM only added the soak the trunk feature in 96. My 95 I can wash and open it up...nothing...but my 97...Gosh...what did they do to us?

Interesting...I thought that was only 96-99 that filled the trunk whe you opened it.

The only leaks I've had were from people leaving windows down.

leaks... I got 2 bonnevilles each with leaks... hopefully I can get out to the leak expert, Randman, and have him fine them and fix them for me. Otherwise, it'll be a long wet road for me.

There was one good rain gutter on the 97 donor car that I removed to put on the 93. I noticed that there was an extra strip of foam tape applied along the same line that I applied the rope caulk. I'm not sure what year GM began putting this tape but it seems that it has helped quite a bit. Most of the cabin leaks I read here are in 95 or older.

My 90 is bone dry. Not a bit of evidence of a leak. I like the way the doors actually close under the roof.
