    Great idea- It is a topless car after all. I will do that. If you have any good examples, send it along!

  3. I don't. But I think a lot of 60s cars had drains in the trunk where the spare tire well is. I'm sure you could find something that would work.
    Alternately, just a little 1/8" hole at the front of the box (assuming you have a forward leaning rake).

    First thing that came to mind is the old air-cooled VW caps for the crankcase.

    You could weld a short tube at the low point in the box and slip this over the tube.
    Check later model cars for the A/C drain. Same thing, let liquid out, but keep air and liquid from getting in. Just needs to be the low spot so it doesn't keep a 1/4" of water in the bottom...
