Ouch! I have no experience at this but would recommend:
1. Remove seats and carpeting - the padding under the carpet absorbs and will hold water for a long, long time and will rust out the floorboards. I had to patch the floor on my C900 due to the padding getting wet from the A/C runoff (discharge hose disconnected) - happened on the passenger side, didn't notice it for weeks.
2. Any clue if water got into the engine or transmission? If so, change the fluids before attempting to start it or drive anywhere. Coolant is probably sealed, as it's a pressurized system.
How far up did the water get, i.e. did it get up to the level of the ECU in the "aquarium"? If so, take it out and let it dry.
