Cold air coming in from the center console

I have an older 601 with the stiff legs.I am getting significant air into the area under the seat and rear fuselage. I installed a small scoop at the back under the tail and built covers for the gear box.All the holes under the belly have been scooped with a punch so they draw air out. There is enough air pressure that makes the stick boot puff up like a balloon. Any suggestions where all the cold air is coming in?RaySee More
