Cant escape the rain!

I bought a car to get away from the rain & cold! First bit of rain with my new car last night. Got in this morning & SPLASH! Looked down and theres about 1.5cm of water in the footwell!! Felt round the interior & sourced it behind the light. Poped it out & theres rust marks coming from the ariel! For just one night thats a hell of alot of water!

Definalty not happy with the seller

Cheer up - on the bright side, the Defender is an excellent tow and launch vehicle!

Spent 5 hours getting p--s wet today working not amused.
At least the Defender floors are built with a slope so the water runs out.

LOL - I had a half inch of water in the back last week - wife spots it and says "how are you getting that out?" - so I took a left and drove up a hill, gone in 60 seconds!

At least we can wash ours inside and out at the same time. And that's with doors closed.

You can see daylight through the bottom of my Defenders doors which is pretty typical Landy, on the plus side it makes an excellent drain
