Well, its raining today. Hard. Last week I sealed the perimiter of the roof line of the Blackbird in hopes that my back seat floorboards would not turn to lakes anymore. Im gonna check in a few minutes.

Good luck! I remember when I had a lake on my floor and under my back seat. It was not a fun time.

[email protected]#$#@!!%!!! I realy thought I had this problem licked. Sure enough, ten hours later and the drivers rear floorboard is wet. I had sealed the whole perimeter of the roof, and the sunroof looks sealed tight. Anybody have any suggestions?

Being in general, this is probably not getting the "need to fix" exposure you need.

There are a few places that water can enter. Have you checked the trunk seals/body sealers to ensure that the leak isn't coming in there, and running up to the passenger compartment?

There are two members posting in this topic in the manner of GARBAGE that belongs in the Lounge, not in a topic where a member is asking for help with a problem.

How about we get this problem fixed in a constructive manner? I'll leave it in General for the time being, but it may move later.

Make sure the car is nice and dry, then run her through a car wash. Or, run the hose out there and soak her down (weather permitting). Then, immediately go over the interior and trunk, and try to find spots that should not be wet. Once you get the leak narrowed down, it should be easy to patch it from there...

The sunroof is sealed, but what about the drain hoses? Did you check those already?

Yes Pete...the sunroof can be sealed, but the Drains can be disconnected, leaving water to enter the car
