Default Re: Green Lantern

There is a tiny hole on the passenger side (which always blocks up) but nothing at all on the driver side near the fuse box. And the damn firewall insulation traps moisture to guarantee a terminal outcome for all but the most dedicated enthusiast!

Not Green Lantern since shes long gone but its interesting the rust forms in the same place due to a lack of proper drainage and maintenance. I can see the floor through the hole and you can also see it from the floor up and under the dash. Something else to check during a pre-purchase inspection!
