Drain holes for sure in the floor. Two of them located just in front of the seats. As for the cup holders I don't know but a small drill would take care of that quick enough.

Whats to rust? The powdercoated tubular frame? From the naked pics there's nothing to hold water once it's drained from the cockpit.
I have not found a naked picture of the SS where are the cup holder!:bookworm:

I'm thinking most of us that have some of mechanical ability could take the bodywork off.
I know some people that have zero mechanical ability. Thus I usually help them. So if
your a person that just isn't good at mechanical stuff. Have a friend help! :)

I imagine that most of us will be able to take the body off. As said get a friend. Be alot easier doing mods to the SS. This way the body will have less chance of any damage during the mod fase most of us will be doing.

Taking things off usually isn't the real hard part... Making sure that you don't ruin something while doing so is harder, and making it all fit back together again (correctly) is harder yet. Lots of plastic, clips, and body fasteners to get just right.

I got the SS wet this weekend (giggity) at Woodward in the rain.

Awkwardly, the rain pools on that black stepped pattern on the hood, but can be wiped out or shaken off quickly by opening the hood.

The cup holders DO have a drain that goes straight to the ground, so that's great, I think you're right, 3W, a little plastic tubing could adapt to the prefitted hole and escort any water or spilled drink away from the inside underbody.

As for the interior, it pooled, drained, and dried pretty quickly via some driving/trailering. I spotted the big drain holes behind the seats, but I can't see the smaller ones. Chances are they are meant to be non-visible, or at least very obvious.

Don't know much about the shifter drying mechanisms, but I suspect there is a channel that goes from the cover down toward the front hood.

Polaris does advertise that it is acceptable to hose it off when cleaning the inside so I'm guessing they thought all this through.
