Miata Raft

Need more details. You could be just fine after getting the water out of the motor, or you could have bent rods.

Practically. I pulled in to my house's parking lot since it was raining cats and dogs. The entrance to the ******* place literally dips in. I had never drove through when it got like that so I just pulled in slowly. By the time I realized wtf it was too late. I came out to push it and water was up to my knees and coming through the door.

<--- Very required for this situation.

I wouldn't be satisfied with anything less than tearing it apart and rebuilding it with new rods.

Seriously you wouldnt be able to tell. The rain was very hard and it was windy as **** my windshield was already foggy and I was the only one coming in. I had never seen it get that flooded before.
