These things are indestructable!

So I'm a giant idiot. Went into an automated high-pressure car wash and about halfway through, water started trickling onto my forehead from the headliner. Before I could react, several gallons of water flooded into my lap and the passenger seat and down into the carpet. Almost simultaneously, a waterfall began spraying out of the dome light. I peeled out of the wash, and once my blood pressure dropped I found out what was wrong. The sunroof was tilted up in back in vent mode, but I had the sunshade pulled forward and could not see that it was open...I forgot to close the roof after my truck had been parked in the Texas heat.

After drying myself and the seats off, I drove back to Austin from San Antonio at 8omph with the sunroof completely open and all my windows down. Water continued to spray out of the dome lamp until just outside of Austin. When I got to my office, I left the truck parked in 100 degree heat with all the windows and sunroof open. By the end of the day, you would never know the atrocity I had committed. The dome lamp never even shorted out. My best friend had the same thing happen with his Audi A4, and his car was in the shop for a week fixing all the wiring issues and replacing the headliner. Thank god for Ford simplicity and durability.
