Question Flooded 1994 plymouth sundance

Hello first time posting. I recently drove my '94 Plymouth Sundance into about 3ft of fresh water. After about a week of below freezing temperatures in my area i have it running again. It was under water about 1 hour before we pushed it out, i have changed my fluids (power steering, trans, oil(2x),anti-freeze,brake) so now im not sure whats next. I know getting the water out of the interior was important so i did that already my main concern is what i can do to prevent the undercarriage from rusting any faster then it is already car is 20 years old this year. Thanks for any insight anyone can give me.

Hi

Fresh water isn't so bad as long as you can get it to dry out. The carpets will NEVER dry if you don't lift them or remove them. This will cause the floor to rust out from the inside.

Also your windows will forever fog up and you could get mold and mildew inside.

Thats good to know crazy about the floors though. I ran a hair dryer on the cars carpet for 4 days straight. (please do not try this its very dangerous) its dry to the touch but i know how water likes to hide left the back window cracked so the moisture could leave the car but like i said its pretty cold here in WV
