Water in the Hood.

Water gets in the hood, I think, from the backside, where there is a good size hole, the rod that has the latch on it goes through this hole from the front. Is there supposed to be a rubber washer? I don't know how else to explain this, Sorry.

Front caps and hood access's are solid fiberglass. There is no paneling or luan to delaminate. If it is bothering you, you can drill a small hole in the backside to let the water drain out. Be careful and don't drill all the way through. Some of the doors have wood fiberglassed into them to mount the hinges into. make sure these don't hold water as it will rot the wood insert.

Drilling a hole is a thought. Every time it rains and I open the hood, water splashes out from the hole in the back side. NOT GOOD!
