I got around to ordering the window strip that I thought leaked. Extremely easy to do, easier than I thought. I had been getting about 2" of water behind my driver's seat, but nowhere else, whenever it rained. Hopefully this does it.



Now I'm debating on whether or not to replace the rusty one on the other side, just to satisfy my crazy need to have stuff symmetrical...

every time it rains, i get this real annoying leak.. in my footwell (drivers)



It took me 3 months to figure out where the hell it was coming from. the Chassis drain plug is missing!





So i fabricated a temp plug for now.. till i can get my hands on one.

uh, Since it has been gettin water inside you might as well try top address any possible rust that may become a problem in the future.. I wish I had done that to my repu like 10 years ago, now I regret it, but back then I knew very little about this..
