Things are starting to look bad for my old girl. Yet again found another hole where there shouldn't be one. This time by the passenger side bonnet hinge. What I would love to know is does this area lead directly into the cabin at this point or into the scuttle area underneath the plastic cover. It goes pretty deep, but didn't see or feel any sound deadening in the area. It's probably going to be rather difficult to weld in that area. So I think the only solution to prevent any further water ingress is to plug it with silicone and hope it doesn't get any worse. It'd not an ideal repair mind but I recon it would still be pretty pricey at the moment when I don't have a good cash flow.
