Pretty confident (well, the carpet is back in, anyway) that my bunch of mods have sorted. Hope it helps

Ok I *think* its sorted!

Sealed as before, and also think that 1 leak was coming in through the courtesy-light switch - the roof rubber seal stops just above, and there was definitely water getting in to the A pillar.

What I DID do though was install a Damp-Proof course!:

I made a small hole in the sealing bungs in the floor pans, so if water does get in, it has somewhere to go. the carpet though should be kept dry.

Lets see how we get on in the winter!

For what its worth, currently driving round like this:   :wacko:

interior
 
so, I've sealed with silicone here:
Left Bulkhead:
L bulkhead
 
Right bulkhead:
R bulkhead
 
and replaced the heater box gasket:
heater Box
 
have replaced the bung & fixed another here:
driver floor
 
but I can still find a leak inside here:
grommet
 
So remaining is to seal up the cable grommet. Note the amp power lead for my stereo which added to the leak  :(

Ps also discovered that the wet in the rear foot wells was running through the channels under the seat crossmember. Have siliconed those too to check

Bit of progress:
The sill hole previously identified has a 'bung' on the passenger side, so mine was missing. I siliconed a replacement in & this has sorted the drivers leak!
The passenger leak is either the bulkhead, or the large cable grommet. I've siliconed these so will advise. Having to drive around with no dashboard to test!
By the way, does anyone know what the small black 'bags of sponge' are, tucked inside the base of the A pillars? Seems designed to hold water against the metal.
