Anyway I can check those seals?
It sure is, I’d rather have it as a car than a fishtank!

Get one of the kids to sit inside and hit all the seals with a pressure washer.

And well my first car was pretty much like the green on. Maybe it’s joking with me?

My first car was the front end of a 77 Fiesta 1300S welded to the back end of another 77 Fiesta...

Now cue Hovis music....

When I were a lad we only got a ride to school if it was pissing down with rain. 7 of us crammed into one of the mums' Minis, usually with enough holes in the floor to drive it Flintstones style...

Well at least you could fix them with a socket set, a set of feeler gauges.... And a hammer.

Check the drains for the A/C evaporator. There are two rather large rubber hoses that have a flattened end where they open and (should) drain condensation from the evaporator. If they are clogged water will back up in the vents and dump on the floor.

The water issue on my 95 wagon was from clogged cowl drains. Even though the top openings looked ok, the stubs that stick out the bottom of the car were completely filled with crud.
Also, as tuttebenne mentioned, those AC drain hoses have been known to break down over time. I replaced those on the same car with some clear tubing from home depot.

Mine doesn’t have a/c the drains allow water to pass through the sunroof was just taped over as much as I don’t want to. And I couldn’t tell you if the screen has been replaced 🤷🏻‍♂️

No they are dry
Wouldn’t it be easier if it just didn’t rain? 😂

What would it mean if it did pool water though?
