    Assuming you have had electronics fitted with the a-frame such as brakes or built in lights, I would check the bulkhead area and see if they have put the bung in properly, or just left a hole!:thumb:

    Hi and welcome to the fun.

    i think its just a coincidence that the cars got a leak and the frames just been fitted.

    i dont know the fox but if the radio aerial is on the passenger wing then check the grommet where the coax enters the inner wing.
    you may have to do this from inside under the dash.

    i had a car (cant remember what it was now) that had the same problem.
    water running down the scuttle drain onto the inner wing, between inner and outer wings, and through the grommet hole.

    took weeks to trace it as well.

    Not familiar with this car but most or many cars have a drain under the vent grill on the scuttle top behind the bonnet opening line.

    This should be visible under the bonnet on the bulk head and often has a rubber bulb type drain that gets blocked up. More so at this time of year with leaves, did you by chance park it under trees---- worth a look
