    Sidecar water seals?
    Swallow Jet 80
    I am resoring a steel-bodied Jet 80 sidecar to go on my Ariel VB. What puzzles me is the openings into the rear of the body where the torsion springing bar projects outward to meet the loop chassis rail. These openings are quite large in order to accommodate vertical body movement but what stops water from entering and rusting out the bottom of the sidecar?
