Scaring the h@ll out of me that the floor might be rotted out cause the rest of the car is pretty rust-free.
Thanks - Mark

Has anyone removed the rubber mat and insulation? Wondering if the car will be too loud if I take it all out for good. Maybe coat the floor with POR-15 or maybe the spray-on bed liner stuff.
Any thoughts? Syill haven't found where it's leaking from yet.
thanks - Mark

Most common places for any Hatch To leak are
# 1. Bottom corners of Both sides of Windshield.....Look very closely at the Interior Corners for a water line ....It will be odd-color or Dis-coloration of the Black Rubber....if you have it, you can replace Rubber Gasket, or Run a thin Sealer bead of Clear Silicone around upper and Inner portion of Outside gasket line
# 2. On Hatches, The Rear side windows with time will Lose their Seal ability due to those windows being opened and Closed so many times.....
You will see a water trail here as well...
The Hinge side of these windows Will flex out of Wack, thus creating a Loose gasket edge.....You can fix this by Pulling them off and Rebending them a bit.....Be carefull not to over do it....
Hope this helps,
