so the storms came at 4am, so I dragged my ass out of a warm bed to see the drips, and if I had conquered The Holy.

Results:
Front drip over the dash? GONE
3rd Passenger wind drip? GONE
2 of the 4 rear leaks? Gone, but only 2 of them.

the 2 remaining drips are most likely due to the fact I skipped some rear seams, and was stingy on the other rear seams to conserve the 212 - yes, I knew what I was doing. So I have to crawl back up there, but at least I am confirming the 212 works.

Thanks for your post Dredman ,I'm going through the exact same thing with mine and was debating about the vent and if it had a purpose.

So do you take instruction from just about anyone or only Mrs dredman or dredwoman?

That seems to be the theme in most of our lives.

I'm happy to be free again. Free like a salmon that finished his work.

When my 1982 model started making too much noise I traded her in for a 92' with a lot less miles.

Noise was never a real problem with my old '74, she just smoked a lot, and just sat there when you stepped on the gas? But she was comfy - maybe TOO comfy. It got so comfy in fact, it was hard to even get in past all the thick upholstery. Currently looking for a newer, more responsive sports model with low miles.
