    Lake was a bit deeper than usual been thru it many times.
    Didn’t put the lockers in and then the compressor got submerged and locked up.
    Mrs wasn’t too impressed waste deep in water inside
    New compressor orderd and being moved to the top of the dash
    Luckily my boy was in the disco behind so he jumped in and hooked up the winch. 035DBA53-3B50-424A-B529-3D1E05391EC0.jpeg 57FFE982-13B9-45D2-806D-BFB09BC76CD3.jpeg

    Indeed , they have like 2 x double door seals , was supposed to have come out fairly unscathed , had been heavily modified for water crossings

    there was a standard D4 I think tried it and was wrecked

    Personally I never go any deeper than my door sills

    Engine must have hydrolocked, as whilst she was sitting there could see water going into the air inlet on the side of the wing

    Heart breaking to see such a nice vehicle being put through that , maybe more money than sense

    Wheel arches sounds low - but you when watch a p38 got up to the wheel arches it looks quite deep. That’s us in the P38.
    Did you get any damage or just the embarrassment of getting toed out by a Disco?
