    Interior question/problem

    To make a really long story short, my 2002 Camaro got flooded out last Friday, I pulled out the interior. Every thing was taken out and dryed off. See Pic.

    I have the rug in the garage drying out as well. Do you think it will shrink when completely dry? Do you think I can salvage the rug? Sould I replace the sound deading material on the bottom of the carpet?

    I have two fans blowing air around the interior of the car because the foot area near the firwall has this other type of plastic/foam that I don't know how to take out with out taking out the dash that got pretty wet as well, so I am going to give it a week to dry out completely before I start the reassambly of the interior.

    Does anyone have any tips on how to replace the carpet or the sound deading material?

    No, T-Tops were on. I parked it at a bus station and there was a valley in the parking lot, and the drainage was apparently not to good. I assume it came from the bottom up.

    I wouldn't waste my time on trying to salvage that carpet. I would find a wrecked car at a salvage yard and get the carpet or shop around online.

    Thats JMO though.

    I did not want the car to be a "Flood" car. It was not that bad, the only real problem was the rug. Every thing else is working just fine, plus my dedutible is 500.00 and what would that have done for me if I went through insurance.

    The back passanger seat was the worst, as the car was not parked level and that side was the lowest. I would assume I had about 10 - 12 gallons of water in the car.

    Car is drying out nicely. right now. Fans do a wonderful job drying stuff out.

    I'm thinking the same thing. since it is all out anyway, why not just replace it, but I am having a hard time justifying the expense as the car only has 60K on the clock.

    My boyfriend has a Trans Am and he left the windows down during a bad storm and had a bunch of water in his not quite as much as yours though and he just took everything out including the carpet and let it dry out and it didnt shrink so you may be able to keep the carpet. Hope this helps!
