Homedepot has plexi and lexan, but I think its only up to 1/8, back by the doors and windows. But most of them are larger sheets. The City Mill in Kaneohe has some back in the outside by the countertops.

Like Dylan said, Min Plastic has just about everything.

The first thing I do when I sink my mx bike or my watercraft is take the spark plug out and spin the engine over.. the piston will shoot the water out of the spark plug hole.

I would also get some engine fogging spray. I use to use it when i would have to winterize my mower or boat engines. You remove the spark plug and spray directly into the hole. Turn over your engine a few times, put the plugs back, then fire her up. During the winter, we all use it to help with internal corrosion due to moisture when the engine isn't being used. It may not be fully necessary in your case, but if it is was me, id do it.. the spray is only a few bucks and is worth the peace of mind

Edit: I usually use CRC or Stabil... but here is Amsoils product description (was the first on google seach):

Used to do the same thing when I would flood an engine

If you pull the fuel pump fuse it won't be squirting gas in.. For water in headlights we use alcohol to dry it out, kinda like swimear.

Did you change the oil yet? If so, still making a weird (grinding noise)? 200K miles maybe it needs a rebuild. Water might have killed the main bearings.?.
To me FU**KED is when there's a hole or crack through you cases.
