Default Car is flooded won’t start.

Car is at body shop and was running fine, they drove it around to get to one area to other and after car was painted it would not start? It always started hard but always started, they are telling me they pulled the plugs and are really wet, they cleaned them up and same thing no start with wet plugs again, I’m going to try changing the plugs tomorrow and have read cleaning the maf with maf cleaner might help as well, is there anything else I can try? I need to get it running to get it on the trailer. Help

To start a flooded fuel injected motor hold the gas pedal to the floor and crank the starter and it should start. This stop the injectors from spraying fuel and it works because I tried it.
