Initiated to the flood club

Anthony is now a member of the Elite club and gets the award "I'll Hit That".
Half-way through our day of wheeling Anthony took point and did an outstanding job with concern for others.
I'm very impressed with his leadership... This could also gives Skip and I a break on hitting the shit first

Unfortunately this one hole got him...

THANKS GUYS ! I've been Initiated....

And I spent 5 hours at my moms house with the industrial carpet cleaner, sucked about a gallon of liquid out of the carpet alone, than took the doors apart, steam cleaned the floorboards, than the padding, than the carpet, let it dry, than cleaned the seats.... It ended up being cleaner than pre-flood... Smells better too

And it's been cleaned thouroughly to "PreFlood" Condition
After washing, prewaxing, clay bar, polish, and 2 stage waxing

Yo, that truck looks clean!! Was that out at Corbett?? Been stuck in the water deep out there, but not that deep...Ok, question...Have heard about a "clay bar" before, but what exactly is it and for what?? Cuz once you see my FJ and how scratched to shit it already is you'll see why I'm asking..

You get it at the parts store it's not cheap, like 25 bucks for the bar....

It's like modeling clay, and you use detailer spray with it.... It does nothing for scratches, you wet the surface with detailer and rub the bar across the surface. It removes oxidation and everything else... It's basically prep for polish and wax's. It removes dirt stuck in paint etc... I can wash my truck, use wax remover scrub and dry, and the bar will be filthy when I'm done. it makes it more reflective and protects the paint by removing the contaminents and waxing over to protect... IT makes the paint feel wet even before polish and wax.

Even after a simple wash (twice a week by the way) I hit the wheels, window trim, fender flares, mirror, chrome, bumpers, door handles, bedliner and toolbox with some high quality detailers to shine and protect everything... It always looks like this

Except after off-roading.

If you want to try to get rid of small scratches you can use some polishing compound. Although it probably isn't the best for the paint.

I figured I would just drag my slider down it and bump off on my rear tire! Just forgot there is a 6 inch gap between my slider and tire.

thank god it dident get to the engine. i dont know why the oil looked mily that night maybe i was seeingthings but when i checked it before the oil change it looked fine. oil only had about 200 miles on it. other then that only problem is the airbag light i think it because the sensor is still wet sensor is mounted under the air bow well below it. so it has to be wet. i dont think the computer got wet becasue cruise control and everytihng elce works including passanger airbag switch and light. only problem other then that is carpet smells not like a stink just smells of moisture. i vacumed most of the water out that night. but when i got in the truck this morning condinsation was out the ass.. so i bought some baking soda about 6 boxes. put em under the seats and other places, in the truck. also my owners manual is wet... but when the water got that high i was being pulled out by a f450 ford.my cab got some water in it good thing was engine was off. i couldent get it stated because battery died but i jumped it. so it runs now. other then that its just the sensor. i havent been able to look at it because its been freeking raining every day since.

Iggy, You should really think about pulling your carpet out and letting it air dry. I sunk my old 95 ranger back when I was first wheeling and it was pretty rank. I had 4" of muddy river water in it. So I pulled the seats, center consol, and the carpet. Let the carpet sit out for a few days, sprayed it with some febreeze and all was well. You could never tell I sunk it before! Its pretty easy. Just start un-bolting and un-screwing everything but keep it in order and with like parts so you dont lose or forget anything. Then just re install your driver seat so you can still drive while everything dries out.

Get some Damp Rid, you can also put a small space heater in there with the windows cracked so it doesn't get too hot to help dry it out. Yeah and pull the carpet.

Air Filter? Get a new one.

It's going to smell like ass if you don't get that carpet dry ASAP. I used to have a beater truck that would leak water when it rained really hard and if I didn't get it dry withing a few days it would begin to mold and mildew. I don't think Baking Soda won't work as well as Damp Rid either.

Fill us in on how and where you got stuck.
