Stuck in the rain with no doors
 
Just got stuck in a rain storm with no doors on and the rear window off. Don't let anyone fool you, you get wet when you don't have doors on. The ENTIRE interior is soaked. It didn't come in the doors too much, mostly from the back window and then blew everywhere. Now to dry it out.

Find a sunny spot and take the top off.
I don't get wet at all when my doors are off and we have torrential down pours down here in the south-east.

Don't think the soft doors will save you. Maybe they will keep you dry, but we had rain all night and my soft doors left me nice puddles in the morn...

I found that while driving, you won't get wet much from the sides, but the wind shoots the rain forward. I keep rags handy to wipe off the inside of the windshield, and everything in the glove box/arm rest if in a large ziplock bag

I just fold my windshield down and wear my dive goggles. :D true story. I'll do so next time it rains here in NC. ;)
