replace or rebuild your caliper, www.germanautoparts.com may have a
reasonably priced one, ask for Dave
and tell them keith sent you. specify early caliper if you have one as the
72 should have the late ones.  I may have a good core as well.

Bitch to the guy who did your work, $$ means the job should be done right
and no, the drain hoses are at the bottom of the air box and therefore
nothing should have to fill up to drain.  Moisture in the back is a bad
window seal or rear hatch seal most likely.  Time for another trip up, I
could offer more suggestion and a hose to find the culprits. Keep up the
efforts, these cars can and should be water tight.
