Great idea. Another one I used was to run a long cotton swab down one of the A/C vent shafts. I picked up a coating of soil verifying what I already suspected; the Honda Civic I was looking to buy as a cheap commuter car was a flood car. This was back in the '90s; the Honda was from St. Louis when the mid-west got flooded.Coming to a dealer near you I heard once, a good way to check for water intrusion is to extend the seat belt fully out and inspect for crud. Most people don't consider that when trying to hide a submerged vehicle repair.
Would not be surprised if some of those looters ah~hem accidentally drown... >Looter scumbags
Good point. I heard of one guy in New York who moved his Challenger to a commercial garage for protection during Super Storm Sandy and the garage got flooded!If you lived right on the water......why the heck did you leave your baby in the garage and not move it higher ground? Just wondering.
