My 90 is bone dry. Not a bit of evidence of a leak. I like the way the doors actually close under the roof.
My 91 ia also Bone dry.... Never a single issue with leaks.... The 95 is making me want to brun the car to the ground
And you could except it seems to have it'* own fire suppression system built in!

Seems like this is a real problem on a lot of the 95'* sround here....

I'll bet I could throw some nice 87 fuel on the car, toss a book of matches at it and poof... A nice little fire... All of the sudden, the flame just fizzles out....

Gonna have to do some running tomorrow... I hope to have the time to tinker with this car...

Well, after yesterday torrential rain while stuck in traffic, I mannaged to find atleast the main leak I have. Driver'* side door area right by the plastic C-pillar cover... kinda seems like I disconnected Sunroof drain to me. Will be checking it out tomorrow when I am home. Now I just need instructions on removing everything.

Pretty much it comes down to take out seats and console...break clips that hold pillars on, pull headliner out.

My 97 had a leak with the original windshield in the upper right corner. After I replaced it, bone dry. I do hate the trunk problem though. I just open it up a little ways and come back later to clean up.
