Just got back from collecting Banana from Steve.
She was very poorly and letting in water quicker than a sieve. The cabin would get saturated after a heavy downpour. Driving would often have sloshing of water in the foot wells after rain. The bins were almost totally dry and I had checked the drains were working properly. So the likely suspect was faulty body seals.
Steve has had Banana whilst we went on holiday, as I use her as a daily driver.
Problem was quickly diagnosed as a faulty hood bag drain pipe, which was then filling the space under the bins!! Which is not dissimilar to the 'hood drain bag pipers' from bonny Scotland! s;-) ;-) s;-)
Anyhoo, Steve offered a low cost solution to fix the vulcanised joint, but then I decided it was time for a new hood. To compliment my new carpet and nvh panels, which were minging.
Kudos to Dean from Rutland, for the hood he offered. Absolute minter!! Cheers.
Steve then grafted,, like only he does, to put Banana back together!! I sliding paying attention to the electrics that had been near the water, to avoid future problems. It's that attention to detail that I love about him.
Thanks very much Steve. I don't know what I'd do without you!!
