Could it be passenger Ttop seal? Or is it down around the firewall?

Definitely not leaking around the t-top, as the car doesn't have one.
I've searched the firewall, engine bay, windscreen, hood vents (around the base of the windscreen wipers) and door; and even re-sealed over all the seals I could find with silicone and, yet, the dampness continues.

Lol I forget you have a '79. Hard to imagine a zx w/o Ttops. Any way you could do the garden hose test at a buddys house?

Thanks. Now you know you have another alternative. Unfortunately the ZX at this age is about as watertight as a sieve. For more info regarding what you're up against search freddy333's threads on water leaks or check out the links in my sig.

I've been trying to schedule that for nearly the past two years. So far, without much success.
You guys who live in houses don't know how lucky you are.

Always good to see some dedication to the Datsun!

I once worked at a real Datsun dealer. Training at Nissan Gardena was the best any car dealer had, in my opinion. Norm K.
