E21 Leaks front both sides

Hi, I have a 1981 e21 318 and it has just been repaired with a new bonnet and front left quarter panel. I have not had the car in winter myself so it could have leaked before but now it leaks very badly so I have it under cover but that wont last forever.

Were are the common leaks in the e21 that would cause this?

Talking Im back....

Water from outside, I have been told that the cowling in front of the windscreen can become blocked with debris, but this flows and I dont know how to access. Then i also hear it may be windscreen, which is possible but the windscreen is freshly installed in the last 3 years so i had discounted.. mayhaps. The water first appeared on the drivers side floor, I took up the carpet as much as possible to see, but couldnt really see source. I took it to the panel beaters who did the crash repair work, but they weren't interested.

I will check again for rust in bulkhead, otherwise must be windsceen yah??
