    Not too terrible. Still bad, but it looks like just surface rust. Hopefully I can get my hands on some POR-15 to fix it. Had some help taking pics

    The drain had leaves and pine needles and crap in there. Snipped the bottom of the tubes and everything was fine after, the cowl even had a couple of drains so it may be worth checking on an F-body also.
    Yeah, but when looking into it I heard on F-bodies it was on the passenger side. Still gonna clean it out, just haven't had the time

    I'm gonna be looking into that. I've heard from you guys and a couple others that'd be what's best to cover it

    FYI - I had a similar issue on the driver's side rear floor. Turned out to be a leak where the T-Top drain ran to the door. Here's a thread that follows my discovery and eventual fix.

    Water leaking into the driver's rear floorpan

    I also suggest getting a buddy to use a bucket of water or a garden hose to help u find the leak with the carpet removed. You may want to remove the sail panel as well.

    Thanks man! Thats good info, I think I'm having that problem on both joints, the one at the right of the driver side window, and the left side of the window as well. I think thats what caused the rust at the front of the floor pan
