Grifter sounds like your drain plug has already been removed.

How come?

If you can see the chassis leg the bung must be missing?

I really need to clear out the crap in my car before the rot sets in and the chassis leg disappears.

So, checked scuttle drain and it seems fine. Noticed a wee bit split on bulkhead panel where i'd dug dry sealant out causd i'd spotted a wee touch of rust.Thinkin might be something to do with it so greased over it as temp fix.

its usually the scuttle area but anyway heres a daft idea. soak up as much as you can with towels sponges wet vac etc until you can dry it out properly ,carpet up job etc. however you choose.soak up some with white kitchen towels to make sure you are looking at clear rainwater rather than antifreeze although you would know if it was that anyway.now heres the detective bit.mix up a bucket of coloured water.use whatever you wish to make this.a small amount of coloured emulsion paint,food dye of even beetroot juice whatever .gently pour this over the passenger side of the scuttle area/windscreen corner so it flows down and drains out of the. bottom.hopefully!. then check inside again to see if any fresh but now coloured water has appeared. again white kitchen towels are best for this.if so then you now know that its definately somewhere in that area.check usual drain bung,seams,etc. .

Get a torch & a long stick and give the bottom of the pollen filter housing a good poke ..... other than a rusted out hole, it does seem as though the grommet at the bottom is blocked.

This is what you need to see -

If it's as clean as this, report back before going any further with investigation.

I did check all that area and was draining, will take another look. Granted i've been finding water leaks on cars for 20 years so shouldn't be too hard to find once i go to town on it.

I believe a post sometime ago told of corrosion in the walls of this area, the pollen filter well, allowing water in to the car interior..

Just noticed it's wet in the back passenger side now  :o Car sitting on slight slope downfacing so maybe leaking from back somewhere? Did have it out a run Sunday to get the cobwebs off, however front was more or less dry as I had soaked it all up and put paper on it so couldn't have run in from the front to the back.

Put a dampener on things this - cue the one liner!
