Default ARGGG & WOOT in same day

been working on my ride since 8am this morning, went over my grand dads to see if i can find the leak in my trunk, pulled everything out, the carpit the lineing the sub woofer the trunk lid lineing, everything, looks like it could be leaking from more then one spot, probably thre places, thawed out the 60 pound ice block in the spare tire well, vacumed all the water out, drilled some holes to drain for a temp fix untill i can lock down the leaks, im also leaving everything but the sub woofer out untill its fixed, on a bright note i pulled off the rear light fixture where i had thought the leak was, and nothing, no moister, no water, all is good ther, dont need to buy another.

so i finish this up, and think to myself, serounded by tools, in a heated garage, day off, what better time then now to try to do the clear corners, was EASY and fun to do, its done and looks GREAT, gona post some pics in your ride section in an hour or two, loned my mom my camara and she didnt give back my USB plug so i have to go get it from her
thats the WOOT

You have water leaking into the trunk and the only thing you DIDN'T take out was the only electrical device in the trunk? I would take that out asap, but its not my car.

At the same time, I hope you get your leak issue fixed up.

Call me crazy, but maybe lose the subs for a short while? Don't need subs for music, there ARE other speakers.

One thing I would try is to have a flashlight with you in the trunk (closed) , while someone pours water over the car to see if it leaks. Make sure you trust the person to let you out of the trunk after, lol. Might be the easiest way to find it.

Well, bad news. The box your sub is in is made of MDF, which sucks up water like a sponge. The wood will warp, and become unsealed, thus ruining your box.
