    I got a leak and video of the problem

    Okay so i think it's the t top. I've tried to just tell people about it but it's easier to make a video about it. There's water on my floorboard under my carpet i think i explained it pretty well. Any input would be awesome cause i'd rather not just blindly pull apart thing.

    The windshield piece probably has junk it in or it could be the condensor dumping into the floor

    okay so you wouldn't think it was the t top? And it happens when the car is just sitting, like i'll come out to it in the morning after a rainy night and it'll be all damp, so i don't think it's the condenser. So joshiedoom you reccomend i pull the cowl panel off at the bottom of the windsheild and look for stuff clogging it?

    haha yeah i had my buddy hold a hose where the top meets the windsheild and it was a it was literally a steady stream. It was prolly enough to fill a glass in about 5 seconds. i'll check it out. Any other thoughts? Anyone's welcome

    if u know the t-top leaks y not fix that and then see if the problem continues? my old GTP had a leak in it when i got the windshield replaced, the water was around the same area, there was a little plastic peice they forgot to put in, not sure if the TA's have it but im sure theres a seal somewhere off the windshield

    Since its on the driverside, its not the condensor. In your video you said it was your T-tops bc water was pouring in while your buddy soaked it. If thats the case, replace the weather-stripping around the t top, or you can pull of the Pillar on the driverside and inspect to see if its running down under the pillar and then down onto the floor board.

    Over time, the gaskets will get dry, and shrink, I have been using a silicone dressing on all my gaskets, and have not experienced any water leaks.

    yeah i know man i just had it in the shop for a week we were paintin it... so u gotta cut me some slack
    OH and we had also just buffed the outside of it... the whole car feels like silk we used an electric buffer. It took literally every little spec you feel out of the paint. the car felt smoother than a wet pu.... Any way along with that i had this bubbly sail painel ( the one behind the t tops) so we sanded that down.
    My uncle and i made a color mixing cherry red (a dark dark red with very fine silver and red metal flake in it) and gm black and we basically painted it as a test to see if we needed to add more red or take some out for when we paint the whole car this summer. the car looks black at night but in the day it'll like flip flop a little when the sun hits it to the red. damn i love it. i'll take some pics as soon as i find someone who can wet sand in clemson. I don't trust myself with it, i view body work as a fine art.
    Anyway yeah i'll clean the interior real well this weekend after.
