Default interior water leak?

i have a strange leak and i have no clue how in the hell it's getting in. every time it rains the actual chassis itself fills with water and it comes into the car through the holes in the floorboard that are plugged with the rubber stops.

i've already tried unclogging the rain rail drains and that didn't help and i've done everything else i know to do. maybe just drill a few small holes to let it drain before it can ever get up high enough to get in? i don't really have much spare time so it's going to have to be a simple something or i'm going to have to take it to a shop.

any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I noticed that I was getting water in the doors and I finally found out that it was getting in through the little space between the windows. Directly behind the side mirrors on the doors there is weather stripping. Where my 2 windows meet there is a small gap that allows water directly into the door.

I'm not sure if thats where your is getting in, but you might wanna take a peek.

Sounds like your rockers are filling up. Clean out the drains under the doors.

Theres a M.net garage article on it with diagrams.
