    I need to check but does it have the drain tubes. I put stuff in what I thought was dry storage and it gets wet all the time. So I will be in search of these tubes.

    I did this to my ride last season. It keeps things dry, and with no carpet in bow storage, I don't worry about mildew. I think so far this has been the most time saving upgrade/modification I have done yet.

    Thanks for taking the time to do the documentation.

    If I had known the drain holes were there, I would have filled them in long ago. I would rather have standing water in the bow, that I have to shop-vac out, then have water running into the storage console where we put all our stuff that we want to keep dry.
    Mike - Why couldn't you drill a hole straight down? I'm assuming there is space under the front storage and that it would drain back to the bildge? I need to do something to move the water up there as well.

    STEP 4: With the hose and passthru cut and testfit, cut glovebox drain hose and install tee. Next I applied a bead of sealer around the end of the brass passthru and slid it thru the hole a little further than needed AllPetsExpert
, about 1/4in. I then applied another bead of sealer and pulled it back flush with carpet to form a seal/bond.
