OMG :-(((

Mark, that´s horrifying ... not trivial at all ... :-(((

Before drying ... Rinse, rinse, rinse thoroughly with lots and lots of fresh water! Not high pressure but continuously from the pipe. Anywhere you can reach. Those floods contain stuff you´d never think of. Fresh water is less rust-provoking than a never-drying-mud-trap inside outriggers and other cavities.

Mark, we keep our fingers crossed for you. Especially when it comes to the technical things like replacing oil, getting mud out of the bores and axle drives and getting your pride and joy back into running shape. And all your renewed wirings! They need to dry out as well ... hopefully the water won´t creep too far under the insulation.

If you need mental support, just post it, and we´ll all be there.

Most important: Don´t part with it!

Best wishes and cheers from Wolfsburg
