I didn't realize that they (Rometsch) have suicide doors.

That's awesome!

The Red piping has to go. Sorry. A darker Grey would have looked excellent. MO. Not sure what's original though, so who am I to question the scheme. Arrow

Most of the air seeps in thru the gaps between the decklid and body - as there is no rubber seal there. Rain is deflected from the engine compartment because on the body side, there is a channel under the gap which collects any rain getting through the gap. There are also some oval shaped holes underneath the engine decklid chrome "eyebrow" which allow some air in.

And some previous owner of this one had added a porsche style air vent in the deck lid for extra air....probably because they also shaved off the eyebrow and the associated holes are patched over.

I've never seen that car before in my life. Is that made by VW?
