When driving in the rain, how do you keep T from getting wet. The last two times I washed the Roadster it wouldn't start for awhile. Is it the coils that are getting wet or something else.

Probably the coil box getting wet. Usually isn't a problem on ,26-7's with engine mounted box. Usually isn't a problem driving as the engine heat usually keeps things fairly dry

Can't say for sure that it will END the problem, but it sure does help with it. I had no coil trouble in my '14 after experiencing the thunder and wind storm at the winery lunch stop on the first day of the Finger Lakes tour. It was like Niagara Falls going sideways. When it let up enough that I was able to snorkel over to the car and crank it, she fired right up. No missing whatever, then or after a second and a then a third storm later that day.
