When I bought my from the dealership in'99, it too came with this neat foot washing feature. Turned out to be the seal material between the windshield and where the vents are. The spot where if you had the hinge kit to allow the winshied to flop down forward (goes all the way across to the passengers side).

HTH, Dennis

i hosed it down last night and the water seems to be running into the clutch M/C area and then down into the footwells (the clutch pedal drips) i also disassembled the dash partially to check the windshield and vent seals and see if that was the issue. nope.
the problem seems to be a design issue really since the channel stops short of the fender and the bonnet seal stops 1.5" short of the channel.
it needs a gator or some form of shield to divert the water when you wash it.

My feet are generally dry when i'm driving so i'm pretty sure that is it.

there are some other leaks but nothing major or unexpected at this point.
i added a closed cell foam stip to the pass side door along with the full SW door seal and that seems to stop the leak from where the FG hard top is lacking any channel and the seal is causing the Pass door to stick out slightly from under the Hard Top.
that should go away with time as the seal gets broken in (and i am going to refit it this weekend to see if i can get a better gap in the corners.

Other than that fairly dry (or as much as can be expected anyway until i buy a Bager Top with channels).

where do you source the Dum Dum strips from?
