Water pooling somewhere in body/frame

So I have a problem, anytime after a rain/car wash there's a sloshing sound (think water sloshing to and fro in a bathtub) when I accelerate/decelerate. it's a very large amount of water.

I have verified the rear hatch and lights do not leak.

I pulled down the headliner and checked all four sunroof drains for leaking. I can pour a bottle of water into the drain up top and quickly fill up another bottle that is at the other end of the drain hose.

So here is where my head gets into a pickle.

It seems the drain hoses just empty into the frame/body. So if I pour water into the passenger side drains at the sunroof it all trickles out the front pinch weld area pretty quickly, if I do the same on the driver side water I get a very slow series of drops. I cannot for the life of me find where it ultimately exits the frame/body.

any info on this would be GREAT
