Default 89 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Interior Leak

I have a leak from around the windshield or roof and can't locate it.Are there any common areas it may leak from?

Car has a vinyl roof that I would like to remove and have the roof painted to match the bodycolor, but I'm scared I may find lots of rust under the vinyl.

Do you happen to have a sun roof?

Nope, no sunroof, just the crappy vinyl roof.

Would you stop looking at your fuel gauge because you are afraid it will be empty?

You need to find out what is under there, and you need to do it soon. It could be the differance between less rust now, or more rust later.

Lol, yeah, I do need to find out whats under the vinyl. It was my Father'* car that he left to me so I want to keep it in good shape and besides the roof its pretty nice.

About the leak I think I may try food coloring in water and see if I can trace where it is like someone in another posting did.
