Todd: Years ago, one of the members on here bought the first JPS 356 coupe. It leaked like a sieve. So much so, in fact, that after about 30 minutes of driving in the rain there would be a 2" deep pond on the floor on both side of the tunnel. When you stopped, all that water rushed to the front to splash up against the bulkhead and pedals and put your feet under water up above your ankles. No kidding.
A bunch or SOC guys helped with an on-site intervention at the guy's house and installed and sealed rain shields similar to those Alan posted (there were big holes just ahead of the rear wheels into the cockpit area) along with finding and sealing as many leaks as possible by shining bright lights along the seams and so forth (there were lots).
Eventually, it was made pretty water-tight, as it should be for a coupe, but it was a big job getting it there, quite a while after delivery to New Jersey from the JPS shop in California. And people wonder why we're not big John Steele supporters?
