Bizarrely, yes. I've never really understood why Triumph didn't come
up with a better solution for this. After all, the Spitfire may have
been designed by an Italian (and it never rains in Italy, of course),
but it was built in UK, and it hardly ever *stops* raining here.
When driving, rainwater only tends to come in at the very top of the
leading edge of the side windows, and then not a great deal gets in, so
it is hardly worth worrying about. When parking, however, try to face
the car into the wind, or quantities of rainwater will blow in all the
way along the trailing edges.

No, not missing anything, just discovering another of the joys of owning
a Spitfire. :-)
