|While driving home from work the aother day in the rain I was quite pleased at how little water made it's way into the car until, that is, I got home and opened the trunk which was totally soaked.
I seem to remember something on this topic before but can't seem to find it. (Greg, what is it with the search feature? It always finds nothing when I use it.)
Anyway, a little poking around and I found evidence (road grime) that water was coming in the rear corners through the gap in the inner fender where the tail lights sit (see picture).
After pondering for a while I made two sheet metal (aluminum) plates, pop riveted them in place and then sealed it all up with some strip caulk.
I will have to drive in the rain again to see if it works.
