Water leaking into passenger cabin on both sides

Hey everyone! First post here. I've been restoring my 1962 impala 2 door hardtop. I've been having issues with water flooding inside the car. The last time I sat in the car and looked where it was coming from was between the door and dash area. The car of course has all new weatherstripping on roof rails, doors, etc. I'm looking for some suggestions where to look next. Thanks in advance!

Usually rust and rot in various locations around the front windshiled. Did you pull the front windshield and check for any rot during restoration?

Hey guys! It's not coming from the windshield area. It's all good. Come to find out its coming from the door window seals. I replaced all the weatherstripping and it was still coming in. It runs down the rubber and then finds its way into the door where the door window sweep meets the vent window/window channel area. I wish someone could post some close up pictures of these areas bevause its been 14 years since I took this car apart!
