Default Puddling PT

O.K., I wash my PT or a rain hits and I park her my garage, over the space of 1-2 hrs, a puddle of water about 15" to 20" in dia. pools up under the front doors where they meet the front fenders. I worry if the holes(that I can't find[xx(]) gets clogged up, I'll have two fenders full of water.
Does anyone else have this problem, or is this normal for a PT[:I]

Rivey, I would take it to the dealer AFTER you document it with pictures, let them "find the weep holes". Have them take you to look at other PT's and see IF they have weep holes and where they are located. All of the autos I have had do have weep holes somewhere on the bottom so liquids can drain.

Another thought, Did you have it RustProofed? Sometimes when the apply the rust proofing it will "fill" and plug those holes. [xx(]

I feel your frustration!!!

Never get that much. I used to get a little dribble, trapped I think by weatherstripping that would appear when I'd open a door - using a leafblower to dry cured that - you blow all the water out of nooks - try it, it works! [:I]

Do you dry it before you park it?

Just kidding, I hook the hose up to hhe exhaust on my shop vac to blow the water out of all the cracks and small areas where is accumulates and keeps dripping. Then I use my air compressor as I finish detailing it. The shop vac really does most of the work though.
