    well with the recent rainy days here in the north east, i discovered that water is dripping from behind the dash, down by the hood release, and soaking my floor. im sure some of you have seen this so any help or ideas would be appreciated. i want to nip this one in the bud ASAP.

    thanks

    It's most likely the windshield gasket is leaking at the corners and needs to be resealed. Mine was leaking there too and resealing the gasket fixed it.

    I had the same problem with a 79 Shortbox I had, turned out it was leaking in where the E-brake cable came into the cab. A little bit of silicone and it was good to go.
