Go open your driver and passenger side door, and just give it a light push with your finger, notice the door close itself completely? Try opening it on a windy day, it just shoots outwards with even the slightest gust of wind.

My friends are used to big fat american cars so even the most gentle of closing sounds like the door just got slammed.

I'm afraid of the speakers, i'm afraid of MORE rattling than there already is from both front doors and I want to know if there's anything I can do about this?

P.S. The back doors seem bulletproof. They sound and feel SO solid as compared to the front....

I like it like that. Go drive a 2 door american car like a cavalier or a camaro and notice how it wont even hold itself open on the slightest incline. Nice light doors are a +.

yup, add some sound-deadnening material. It will add some considerable weight if you do the whole skin like you should. Probably add about 4-10 pounds i would guess per door.

Yeah sand is better than concrete due to sands favorable drainage characteristics.

Kev.

PS: deaden your doors with rammat ;)

My friends know to take it easy with my doors. I don't mind if u have to try twice to close it....most the times you don't.
Just a light touch.
They are now all careful when getting in and out. I hate the scuff marks from ppl getting in and out of my car. kicking my car....fricken ungrateful punks :p hehehe.

That's my problem!
They all have big ugly chevy trucks from 80's or bulky old cars and don't know the concept of gently shutting a door. It irks me every time and i'm just afraid of sounding anal or crying over my car or something but I swear it's either the car or me, I have to decide and i'm choosing neither. I;m gonna just tell the people to close gently.

man, id rather have my friends slam doors than how they treat my car... I was detailing the other day and discovered one of them slammed the seat belt in the door jam... and it dented the jam and took about a quarter size chip of paint off... the jam AND the door where it meets. Freakin disrespectful friends... and i know there are about 3 people who it couldve been, so they can blow me if they ever think of asking for a ride anywhere again.

Why me, don't you want midgets to do the job? That's discrimination!
