    Know that feeling. Pain in the ar$e!

    Car all lovely and dry. Open doors, dry in door shuts, close doors and it's waterall time!! Argh!!!!!!

    What i do is once car is dry, open and slam the back doors until the waterfall stops. Also get the egde of my drying cloth and run it along the bottom of the seal.

    Have sometimes even gone round the block once car is dry to blow out all the excess water and go round the car and wipe away excess galloons that have run down the sides.

    I don't have the problem with window rubbers, but I get lake windermere hidden around my rear light clusters which then leaves water trails down the tailgate and rear panels

    I think on par with the rear quarter light windows is that ever lasting water flow from behind the door mirrors. No matter how many times you wipe the water away from the door, it just keeps coming back!!!!
