skregal is on a distinguished road

I gave up. But thanks for the help. I know HOW it comes apart, at least.

During my efforts I noticed more and more water spots and kept following the trail.
It appears that the CHMSL is more likely the problem. I believe it was dripping down
unto the screws and access holes that hold the applique, making it look like the applique was at fault, but it seems the water is originating higher.

The CHSML was really jacked. I had posted this in another thread but hadn't fixed it
until now.

I'm gonna water test the newly resealed CHSML first. If the trunk still leaks it must be the body panel
seam behind the applique. Then I'll try again when I'm less frustrated, and maybe have a helper.

Supposed to rain tomorrow.....again...
