Z3 Roadster - dry interior and trunk at last

A big thank you to everyone who commented and made suggestions in this water-in-the-wrong-place thread. My Z3's top is now installed and water-tight. We had the installer put in a new sealing frame, plus inspect the various panels that are sealed with at-the-factory material. My indy German car garage went considerably beyond the call of duty to pursue the problem and solve it. I'm going to dip my rusty tools and jack into a diluted solution of muriatic (hydrochloric) acid, then neutralize it and give them a light coat of paint. Grease the jack screw, of course. Then I can proceed to install the seat shims and replace the sensors under the passenger seat.
