Floor pan drains
« on: July 27, 2017, 08:56:21 AM »
So, what do you do when you leave your windows down and can't get back to your truck before the torrential down pour hits? Or your live in Florida, and water crossings are a way of life? Take out the factory metal plug, and install a removable one

]Get the area cleaned up, removing all the old plug. Then get your pieces laid out.

Put the rubber seal in the hole, as in the first picture, after you have the area cleaned and repainted.

Both plastic pieces have the hole  in the top of the cut as a square for the stove bolt. I put the stove bolt threads down, with the sealing ring, as seen in this pic.

This picture is what the completed piece looks like from UNDERNEATH. Been running these for a couple of years, they work great for keeping the water out, and easy removal if you've think lined and just want to hose out the truck.

This is a picture of the complete piece as you buy it from the hardware store. It's been a while, don't know the exact name for this plug. Just take this picture to your hardware store and they'll have it.

Haha, I do live in South Florida for now.  Good to know.  Any details of the removable plug such as a link?  I am not familiar with that at all.

The removable plug?   Just walk into any hardware store and go to the plumbing section.   

It's a temporary/removable pipe plug meant for keeping varmints out of pipes during construction,  or holding pressure in pipes if you need to start using the plumbing before finishing all of it,  etc.
