Drawer under rear bumper leaks

Has anyone found a good way to seal the rear bumper drawer on a Classic? I know that it's all but impossible when running down the highway - but I would like to be able to keep it dry when parked. Now, every time I open the drawer it has a puddle of water in it - and the drain holes are never in the right place! I've repainted the floor of the drawer twice, and I don't store anything in it that water would hurt - but it's still annoying.

I use that drawer for my stinky slinky stuff only. If I had a puddle, I would drill a new hole and be done with it. That's what my PO did, and I have not had a problem in the 9 years I've had mine.

Cracker,
I agree with Pat. Find the low point, drill a new hole, let 'er drain. I give ours a good clearout, cleaning twice a year and all seems fine. We only store hoses in there.
