    Default trunk leak at the right hinge

    i have a maddening trunk leak on my 99 zx2 at the right hinge. there are these hard gasket seals that go between the hinge and the body and i finally destroyed them trying to get the leak to stop. so i used hard plastic and sealer but it still leaks badly. where can i get some more of those seals? any ideas on fixing this leak? i've tried just about everything....

    I think it's probably coming from the grommet that the trunk wires pass through. I've had mine pool up and leak there. I try to park facing uphill on rainy days to keep it from collecting there.

    this is driving me nuts. i used "heavy duty drip sealer" under the hinge and it still leaks badly. i'll check the antenna. maybe it's dripping down on the hinge mount and making it look like the leak is coming from there. it's starting to rust!
