Default Leak In Trunk

OK, well several weeks agot i removed the spoiler for cleaning, and found a leak a few days later. I sealed the bolts for the spoiler up pretty good i'd say, and i found that the leak then was coming from the antenna hole, and I decided to silicon that too. And I checked the 'gutter' type thing last time also, no leak. Im sure that the antenna hole is still good, and assuming it is (I'll check that this weekend) What else should I check?

Carpet is a little moist, only noticable if you were to press on the carpet with your hand, damp on both side of the trunk.

Also, is there a gutter, or water drain that goes on the power antenna, dad said he remembers something being there incase water did get in, cuz after replacing the antenna the rubber 'ninny' ( haha i said ninny) was stretched a bit...and doesn't seem like it would seal anything anyway, i dont see why it didn't leak before, and i looked on the old antenna and couldn't find anything but w/e

Thanks in advance
