I had a few drops of water drain out but nothing like I've seen some have to deal with.
We have had some serious rain since I finished the repair and have not seen any evidence of moisture.
We had a work day, almost completing sealing the roof areas today. For bumper area decided to go with removal of the rub rail. Question: Is the black plastic looking material (don't know what it's called) adjacent to right and left of the bumper under the rub rail supposed to be sealed completely, or have an open spot for drainage spot on each side where it meets the bumper? (this is area with black sealant)
Funny, I had a similar thought for the belly pan, and brought a shish kabob skewer to put up through 2 holes in the belly pan (or so I thought ) to poke a hole in the insulation and check for water. Turns out the holes I was looking at are drainage for the bumper storage area. I was thrilled to see to drainage holes without having to drill anything but didn't realize they were not far back enough.
Did you leave the 1/8" holes you drilled for drainage? Great to hear you have had no more leaks!
