Like the title says, I've had a bad draft coming from the drivers side front door/ E-Brake pedal area. It's pretty bad, my left foot and leg gets ice cold even wearing two pairs of socks and steel toe boots for work.

I do from my 0 gauge wires running through my firewall grommet in the wheel well. Along with my CB/ HAM wires. Is that grommet sealed all the way?

I don't have a 0 gauge wire running thru the body near the E-brake, but I do have the draft.

I really need to find where exactly it's coming from and block it off. Sucks when it's in the teens outside, my left leg gets cold really quick.

Nope, that got taken out when I did the trimming to fit the 33's. I'll have to get some foam spray and fill in that area. I thought about that when I removed that as I was doing all of the trimming.
