Default Wet feet when raining

Problem is solved but i figured i should post in case it happens to anyone else.
Passenger side would get water drips in footwell area during heavy downpours, i swore up and down it was a windshield leak, had chrome off numerous times, pulled dash pad in and out more times than i want to admit, hoses running, to no avail, never any signs of water intrusion.
Well, with the hurricane over by me and the heavy rain bands i figured nows the time find it!
Soi go for a drive until water starts coming in and head home, pop off dash cap once again and there its is, drip drip drip!!! Coming right through the wiper arm hole, after car was painted i had only tightened the nuts on spindles finger tight! One of those small details that fell through the cracks, anyways. I got my happy ending...
