So looks like I will have to raise the witches hat then drill a couple of weep holes at floor level at the rear of the jockey console. If water is getting in I might as well do it this way...... stick the 3 plastic circles together with sealant to give it height (had to be 3 couldn't get one on it's own for the thickness I wanted) then cut down the middle raise the witches hat then enclose the two halfs around the cables then seal with sikaflex and sit the hat on top so that when water gets in there is enough height to stop the water going over the hat and down into the trunking / hull.

You're thoughts please.....

That's one of Nugent's tricks. Works well.

Steve, am I missing summat? Shouldn't the seats fit over the raised lip on the seat base rather than just sit on the seal. The rebate around the top of the grp base should bear the weight of the seat & your fat arse body & the seal should just touch against the underside of the seat base. In theory you shouldn't need a seal as you form a labyrinth with the seat, if that makes sense. It looks to me that the 2 lateral bits of wood under the seat need shortening.

This is the stuff I put on Dave

Medium Car Door Rubber EDGE TRIM SEAL - Van Boat Truck Caravan - Bonnet Boot | eBay


I thought of putting a bead of silicon on the grp first but it's that tight a fit it would just rub the bead off. The two lateral blocks could do with a bit taking off but with a push they do drop inside the seal.

Water is actually finding it's way under the seal not the seat

It seems a lot of fekin about for an old nowty council waller like me the rubber mallet I was using nearly went through the garage widow but luckily bounced off

I'm not following this properly I don't think. I know it's re upholstery but wouldn't a flap on the seat work?

No Neil because the water is getting in at the front when it runs down the slope / dashboard from the steering wheel.

If it was a pod seat flaps would be the answer
