I can't find where this leak is coming from

Hi. I just bought a 1972 overlander and I can't find the source of the leak by the front door and the window next to the front door. I've put new seals on the door and all but the back window. I've put a new cap on the roof vent and calked around it. Any ideas would be great thanks.

Have any of the windows been replaced with Olympic rivets? My lower Vista views had leaking Olympic rivets on both sides.

The front passenger side window was replaces and I can see the rivets leaking. Should I drill them our and replace them? How do I stop them from leaking?

If they are not loose, use Captain Tolley ' s Creaping Crack Cure. Works well on rivets.
