My 1985 El Camino is leaking when it rains or if I take it to the car wash. I have found where it is leaking on the inside but wondering if anyone knows where its coming from on the outside. I'm afraid to just fix the problem on the inside because I feel if I keep the water from leaking it will just build up and rust a hole in it anyways. What are your thoughts about where the water is coming from and how to fix it all up inside and out.
The leak in the front of the cab is coming from right above a tab seen in the pictures it looks like a half circle like cut. Then the rear leak is coming from certain spots along that metal seam.
You can see the pictures from Photobucket here.

Thanks
