Drain plugs

I just got my "Red" one out of storage and pressured washed the exterior and interior to get the accumulated dust, grime out, and then remembered after the pools of water appeared in the interior, I have no drain holes. All the floorboards were replaced from parts from C&R, (Yes it's been that long). Any idea where to get plugs to go into new holes. I don't want to go with the large plugs if possible. I need some way to drain the water out, esp. behind the seats, so when I hit it with Metal Ready before I paint it with POR-15, I can get the water out. Thanks, Jarrell

jarrell are there any places that do farm equipment near you :D (only joking )
if you have a word with your local supplier they will have a bin full of plugs and caps for hydraulic pipes and hoses just pick the size you want and drill to fit
i used to make rigid hydraulic pipes for cat and they used to insist that all pipes were plugged and once fitted the plastic caps were junked so they should be free

I hadn't had my requisite amount of coffee when I posted that Baz, but that is a good thought. I have a bag of plastic caps that came from hydraulic hoses. I'll look in the shed today. Another dumb question, with hopefully a simple answer too. When I was cleaning the rear, the water was going into the 2 large holes on each side, but when I was vacuming out the water, it was gone in that area. Where did it drain off to? Are there drain holes under there? Thanks, Jarrell

Jarrell, just looked at my 72, and there are 3 drain holes on each side of the belly pan. Two up front in the foot rest area and one rear outside the seat rail structure. There are some more below the gas tank area too. HTH.

It's the one missing from the rear outside the seat rail structures that's letting the water pool up there. All the hole outlines are in the floorboards, just not cut out. I looked a while ago and couldn't find any of the plugs I am supposed to have. One of those "I know it's here, but where" things. I'm going to check out the blue junker later and see if it has any plugs left in it. Thanks Ron, Jarrell
