Does the wetness smell of anti-freeze? If it does it may be the heater core. If not, on a warm dry day when you wash the car or go to a car wash, does it become wet again? Then I'd look at the job you did to the windshield.

Your car may have rusted underneath as well, not the most likely thing, but I owned a 1998 cav and it happened to mine, every time I would hit a puddle it would soak the passenger side floor board would be soaked.
