Bluto,

7/32" about 3/8" back on both seams, will drain right to the ground on our Classic. Poke a stick thru one in awhile to keep it clear.

Going on 7mos now and the trunk and both rear side storage compartment floors are still dry.

Bob, your drain points and low spots (re. the earlier posts where I asked about the 1/2" gap) are really interesting. Those areas are high spots on mine. Or looking at the inverse...my low spot and pooling is in the center of the middle fiberglass section. Seems to be another in the never ending build variations.

I had a similar leak. Started by removing the trim and recaulking. Still leaked. Caulked the top of the trim, still leaked. Caulked the marker lights and rear light housing, still leaked. Finally recaulked the rear window eyebrow; no leak. Start high was suggested to me and that seems to be good advice.

Another often overlooked entry point is the "pocket" style license plate mount. Mine had no sealer at all around it. I used closed cell foam tape so bulb maintenance can be accomplished easily.
