[DML] Re: Leaking Seals...or something else?

Glenn, and the group.
I just posted three pictures in the 'Photos' section titled 'Water 
The pictures have words I added using Microsoft Paint.  Pretty easy 
once I figured out the correct size of text.
The rain water should have not been able to enter the body and find 
its way into the interior.  The pictures are of the interior.  After 
taking the pictures I sealed up the leaks with McKanica Seam Sealer 
Black in a aerosol can.  The can is more in the shape of a tube with 
a nipple on the end for ease of applying the polyurethane based goop.
Another leak I don't have a picture of is the bottom corner of the 
passenger door glass beside the side view mirror.  Water is allowed 
to puddle up there so I removed the TRIM PAD LOWER RH (110174) and 
the TRIM PAD 'A' POST RH (101876) and added more goop to the black 
goop already there holding the window in place.
I too had my DeLorean sit outside before the mechanic could get to 
it.  It was parked nose down and the foot well on both the driver 
and passenger side had puddles of water.  The mechanic even 
suggested to maybe drill a hole in the bottom to let the water drain 
out.  Hell No!

I just discovered that water has somehow been getting into my D.  
The floors on both driver and passenger sides are soaked (I had it 
parked outside at my mechanic's for a couple weeks).  My immediate 
reaction is to blame the door seals.  They're old and are a bit worn 
in areas.  Before I rush out and buy a new seal kit, are there any 
other possible problem areas I should inspect?  The car hasn't been 
driven in the rain at all, so the water must be seaping in from the 
door seals or some other area that could let water run into the 
interior (I'm thinking the trunk maybe???).
