I need some Geekzone assistance laughing

My car lives outside and last week after our first really big frost for the year I noticed I had more condensation on the inside of the car than I had frost on the outside. That night I felt around the car interior but couldn't find any damp spots, until I got to the boot.

I removed the carpet, then the wood liner than sits on top of the spare space saver tyre and found my problem
The spare tyre was sitting in about 5cm of water.

So over the weekend, I cleaned everything out of the car, removed the tyre and dried everything letting the sun take car of the rest. Then I started testing for the spot that the water can get in but so far no dice.

Overnight (Wednesday/Thursday) it has rained and checking the boot this morning I have about 2cm of water in the boot again.
As my testing as not found a leak, I am wondering what type of automotive service store I should take it to.

Google tells me a glass repair would be better than a panel beater, others say just your regular machanic


Car is a 96 Honda Civic LXi if that helps

Physically get in the boot with a torch, get someone else to spray all around the boot and over it for a good 3-4 mins and see what happens.
