sorry for the delay.............

Have you pulled up the carpet & checked to see if it is "water" or "Antifreeze"?
Do you use the A/C regularly?
IF it is Antifreeze, it likely is a Heater Core Leak
IF you use the A/C, it can be a clogged Air Box Drain Tube, which is located off center of the firewall & drains into the frame area
Otherwise, if you have a full tarp over top, hood, trunk & sides, it would be very unusual to come in from outside
