Remember that a wall of water hitting it is like blunt force trauma.
Have you seen the BZforums thread about someone whose fender liner tore out when hitting some standing water?
I’m still in California after picking up my bZ… flooding everywhere…. Went through a little bit today, but not deep or bad… although!! I lost my front Under cover and my front left fender liner! not sure exactly what happened but it’s possible too much water pressed though the front vent? And...
I plan to drill the hole for mine for each side with the wheels off, just as soon as the mudguards and the darn jack arrive.
I spent my afternoon assembling and installing a floor to ceiling (Touring model, so it goes up to the bar between the front and rear portions of the fixed moonroof) pet barrier.
I also used the cardboard template I made a few days ago to cut a 36” x 51” (rough cut) piece of 3/8“ plywood to fit on the folded rear seats to extend the seatbacks over the passenger footwell and up to the pet barrier.
When my (delayed) adhesive comes in, I have two pieces of 5mm rubber that I will glue to each side of the plywood and trim to the same outline.
Then apply some heavy duty U channel edging to the whole thing to make it look like a factory piece.
I am also waiting on an All Weather Cargo Mat from the base trim Solterra (without subwoofer) which will be installed 180 degrees opposite the one in the cargo area and provide a place for sand and water to go when we go to the beach with the Corgis.
This was taken in the dark, so it‘s not a great picture. More when I finish the project.
The Activity Mount is backordered, too, which is what the Twistep mounts on and will swing underneath the car. It‘s the step for the Corgis to enter and exit the cargo area.
There are also door covers and seatbelt covers to keep them from damaging stuff in the back.
I’ll have a full list when everything is done, with better pictures.
