^ thank you

got myself some WADE light covers for the ultimate aero!







and to keep them leafs out and kill the aero, I got a snow scoop too... attached via zipties


100amp denso (belts are shorter and I only had one)


I finally got around to installing the extra door seals. It really cuts down on wind noise.


fix one thing another fails...
one of my ac accessory bolts was missing so the ac compressor was crooked ... it took out the bearing which then took out the magent.... well I replaced the magnet but now the compressor is super hot when it turns on, and makes a bad noise. I need to take it to a shop to have another one put on.
While I was in there I swapped to YoshiFabs aluminum bushings

Also fixed page two of this thread

flush windshield did very little to the noise

driver side front ... yes very noticeable... at the same time I feel like my equilibrium is off because there's noise coming from everywhere but that area

I got around to doing the roof this morning. Stopped at the cargo area. I also left some off around the roofrack holes for when I get around to welding them...

morning sun helped a lot to get the factory stuff off

Huge sound reduction on highway just from the 2/3rd roof and one door done. The other side effect was the cabin HUGE heat reduction, it was mid 90s today. On the highway I rolled my windows up and only had the front kickpanels open, normally the heat would be unbearable but now it was surprisingly quite comfortable.

I'm so impressed that I ordered more dynamat and dynapad (used to block heat) both of which I will add to this car and my wife's black 850. I wont tell her that Im installing anything and wait for results.

obligatory #fakeSTANCE photo from today

Do you know the weight difference between that and the factory tar paper?

those are aligned perfectly to blind 7/900 series owners vision causing them to go blind and swerve off the road (fingers crossed)


this was the first car I got.

the roof and door tar is super skinny but I can measure today when I do the rest
the floor stuff is long gone.

oem tar from the roof (almost all the glue came off with it) - 14" x 31.5" weighs 495 grams





dynamat extreme 31.5" x 14" on one end and and 14.5" on the other (me good with scissors) with the heavy backing paper weighs 658 grams

I would bet it's very close to 600g without paper and the exact 31.5x14
