I had taped over the perimeter of the sunroof before my recent sealing of the rest of the roof.

MOS95B: Thank you I will try that next.

The sunroof seal should be able to leak all it wants to as long as your four drains are attached and not plugged.

It'* designed to work that way.

I taped over it to rule it (and it'* drains) out as a possible leak.

I just paid enough attention to notice you have the exact same body as me... (car body, that is)

Pay very close attention to your rear door seals. Mine leaked like crazy when I got her... A little re-adjusting, and some touch up glueing cured her right up...

Mine were at the top rear. I could see the little waterfall when I was in the carwash. You should be able to just look at the door and see if it'* out of place.... (Shooting from memory here. Unfortunately, I don't have time to go out and look at my doors to verify this stuff)

Thanks for the info. At least it leads me into a new direction!

On my 94 I had a similar issue. The rear door seal where the back of the door comes to a "point." Like that sharp bend there. My seals shrunk (???maybe???) but they would not fit. So when in a car wash I would get a waterfall. Never really found too much on the floor though...

Ok, that rules out the sunroof then. My sunroof seemed all sealed too, but it wasn't.
