Default Water leaking in my Cab..

After all the rain we've been getting lately I was not surprised to see some water under my floor mat on the passenger side. I dried it up and said lets see if there is any water under the main floor mat, Holy Crap lots of water and it was pouring out of the padding when I pulled it up
I took the seat and floor mat out, I found lots of water on both sides and it was obvious this was not the first time water had been under the flooring.
The padding is still drying days later, the cab dried out fast and was scrapped down and wire brushed. I sprayed it with a rubber sealer I picked up at Home Depot. Next step is to find the leaks and seal..
Looked on ebay and found new weatherstrip at a decent price compared to what the auto parts store want. I'm thinking of hitting the junk yards and see if I can salvage some weatherstrip.

hey while you have that carpet out I would like to make a suggestion. Go to your local autoparts store and pick up one of those Do it yourself bedliner kits and give it a few coats on the floor of the cab. You will be thankful you did later....

Thanks for the reply.. I though about that and bough the spray can of rubber sealer, it seems to have worked well and only time will tell how long it will last. I'm gonna get a couple more cans to spray the rest of the cab floor.

Cheaper then the bed liner..

As long as its a rubberized coating then your good to go. Give it a healthy coat on the floor of the cab. No more rust after that
