Shocked Id be putting my FF on ramps out of harms way and use my 90 for wading and getting about! Dont want the carpets getting wet Laughing
look forward to the pictures though Thumbs Up hope your not flooded like some homes out there, not good all this water Sad If it dont work.......burn it!

If the IId tool cant fix it.......burn the FF.

If the FF cant be fixed......buy a Land Cruiser!

If the LC cant be fixed..............................................BUY a horse !!

Oh Lordy I really hope this goes well just be bad enough having your home flooded without the car being turned into a barge.

I was in Datchet all day yesterday with mine, for work. I live by the Thames in Eton and stupidly drove down one of the back lanes, at one point the water was at the door handles with the suspension jacked right up Shocked
Had about a pint of Thames come in the front passenger door.

Being an SC i think yours draws air from both wing vents does it not? So you have about 3 foot of wading with a bow waving, maybe 4foot if you keep it going in extended mode.

My advice would be to chuck some big old slabs in the boot and add at least 2-300kg there as they easily move about with crossflow due to low rear weight.

If the water comes up the doors dont be worried, I've had the water hitting on the passenger side up onto the passenger side windows and no water came in at all Very Happy

You might want to correct that spelling error before Kurt puts you on his "special mailing list" for all those "special" forum members showing an interest in "climbing in Kurts window" Whistle Whistle Whistle
