    Probably go in the garage to get it completely dried out. But plan is to be back outside with a cover. I still want to fix the leak, cause I don’t want to worry every time its out in the rain. I believe its getting in the door seals, or at least the glass seal that is on the body. Noticed the places they joined the rubber were cracking and shrunk back from the corner of the window. Will be contacting Metro. What really sucks is the 40 year old seals never leaked that much. :BangHead: :wtf::soapbox:

    Where is the leak coming from? Windshield? That’s a lot of water! Wiper pivot seals?

        I got it I the garage a couple weeks ago. Unbolted the seat and pulled the carpet up. Had a fan blowing under to thoroughly dry it out. looks like the gasket shrunk back from the top front edge of the glass. I will try fixing openings in gaskets and adjusting the windows in the Spring.

          For now Cinnamon is back outside with her new dress on. Very nice fit. Comes with 3 straps with snap in buckles. Added 2 bungees underneath using tarp grabbers just inside the tires. Plus a rope across in front of windshield so it can’t move much if wind gets under.

            I covered my cinnamon Plymouth up last night. Had it out yesterday for the first time in 6 weeks since we’ve had non stop rain recently.

              Heads up I completely ruined the paint on my wife’s Jeep CJ-5 with a custom fit cover outside winter before last.
              It fit tight and it rubbed the paint off the hood and fenders.
              Last winter it is inside, a friend of ours, she rented us her extra garage for $600 a year.
              Money well spent.
              Still have not had time to re-paint her Jeep.

                Had her out for a cruise just now. Ran great. Window down wearing a t-shirt on Jan 12th. Whoda thunk it? :rolleyes: :thumbsup:
                Nice to just pull the cover and go without feeling like I need to wash it first. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

                    I almost stopped by, but figured you'd be chasin the little white ball in this weather. LOL
                    Decided to try getting in the Duster 50th anniversary feature this year at Carlisle. So went up to the elementary school's lower lot and took all the pics they want. Then went for a second round of cruising. Forgot to look at start miles, but had to do near 100 miles today.
