i know where the top drains are but where are the under the hood and door drains where do they drain.

Those vents drain out the tubes in the transmission tunnel underneath. These tubes OFTEN get clogged. My 560SL has four drain tubes in the transmission tunnel. I believe the front two are from the hood vents and the rear two are from the A/C evaporator.
