Hey guys,<P>I just took of the door trim panels to check out the scene on what it takes to dampen the car a little. Looks pretty messy in there. Has anyone dampened their C70s yet? Kai? <P>Also, in the trunk, by the seats, when you lift up the plastic panels, you see a bunch of wires and stuff. What are those for? TIA<P>Regards,<BR>Mike H.

The guys at OC Volvo say that doing ANY work on the door of a C70 is an all day affair. I have seen the inside of it another C70 and its a disaster. I would like to quiet the wind noise from the driver window to the quarter window. It makes some noise at speed. Mine is pretty quiet all in all.<P>

Got any pictures???<P>but i think the wires you are seeing behind the seats is probably power lines for your rear lights, rear speaker cables, amp cables, and even the gas cap switch. those are the electronics i think are in the back.<P>btw.. what is the dampening for? sound system? quieter ride?<BR>

Nah..I haven't even thinking about messing with any of those stuff just yet.<P>Yeah...I did hear from 1FASTBOX(Sean) mention about how PIA that C70's door panels and the window adjustment can be....I wouldn't want to do anything too funky and involved.<P>I'll ask my installer this Friday to see how involved it is to do that on the C70.

For me, it's the road noise and some wind noise. Altough it'll add some weight to the car, my plan was never to race it anyways. I just finished doing the trunk lid. I had to rewire the wire to the license plate light and trunk release. In the process, I broke the license plate light. The wires are a little short so I'm going to be doing some electrician work tomorrow. My trunk is rock solid! No clunks, just a big thud. I might do some overkill tomorrow on it. I'll take pics as soon as my parents come back from Vegas with the digicam (and money <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">)

Then again, I'm going all out with this, no second gussing for me on this one. I'm hoping once everything is done, hopefully it'll only 50lbs or so. <P>
