Is the roof and doors sealing or is it letting water in?

Inspect the cowl area for rust

Thanks for your reply. It doesn't look like it is the doors or roof. What is the best way to inspect the cowl? Looking under the hood I can't see any problems at the fire wall.

Will do. I will check the cowl area and hope for the best. That is one area I was afraid of but I guess I will have to just jump in. Thanks again for your help. I'll let you know what I find.

At the base of the windshield there is what looks like a vent, raise the hood and remove the screws to access the cowl area.

Thank you. I was wondering if there would be a difficulty removing that vent. I have seen the screws and actually was looking for confirmation if that would give access to inspect the cowl. It will be off tomorrow. Thanks again.
