There's a seam down in that channel where water can get in and run to places where it shouldn't run. It helped for a while but it has since separated, I'm guessing from having the nose unsupported while the car is on jack stands. The second photo shows a gap at the top of the hinge pillar which should be filled with factory sealer. If I remember correctly, the water flowing into the seam I mentioned previously drained out of this gap on both the outside and the inside of the hinge pillar. The inside is what's shown in the photo in the first post of this thread. Hope this helps. If necessary, I could try to take some better photos of the area shown in the first photo below, but I probably won't do it until Saturday.

I'm going to need to remove some of the Bondo that was used to fill in the area on my car, that you have pictures of. Once I do that and spray some water on the car as most people here recommend, hopefully I will see what I need to do to stop the leak.
