I gave the Guzzler a wash today with assistance from my two littleist helpers (mostly me squirting them with the hose - they had their togs on already!)
I expect a bit of water to get in here and there, but I would like to deal to the water that gets into:

1. the panel behind the rear bumper and underneath the boot lid

2. The U-section re-inforcing of the boot lid

Where is the most likely place the water is getting in from for these two?

I imagine that I could drill a couple of drain holes for #1. This bit needed replacing on Moggy (my Oxford), and I'd prefer to avoid extra welding if possible

As for the boot lid, the number plate light plinth would seem the most likely place for water to get in. I don't think there is a gasket there (from memory).

I would suggest you get in the boot with a torch and try the hose trick again - but make sure you have the keys...
