I have already posted my owner reports on the original thread.
Here are few new pictures:
I remember someone mentioned the spacing between the pedals were problematic. Not for me.
Sorry if you don't like my shoe...
Front of the car with my new front proximity sensors.
I realized I did not post picture of my car with the roof up.
Now, my new Windblocker.
From the back
With the zippers to place objects on the back seats.
With the zipper openned.
Enjoy the pictures.

I really like the zippers in the windblocker. My '99 first gen doesn't have them, and they seem to be very practical.

Interesting... the material on the windblocker appears to be see-through. It seems like you can look thru it to see the seat and its contents underneath. If that's the case, I think it may have been better with a darker, non see-through material.

the material on the vertical and horizontal parts are the same. For the vertical part you need to have it as a see-through in order to be able to see behind the car with your interior mirror.
For the horizontal part, I can understand your remark.
The material is some kind of black meshed tissu.
The windblocker is can be folded twice, first to put the parts flat, then to decrease the size by two in order to have everything stacked in around 2 feet by 2 feet transportation bag provided by Volvo.
Manipulating the windblocker is like a "mecano" at first but rather simple. Installing it on the back seats cannot be more simple.
Overall, it is a must have it.

Appears to be made of the same mesh as mine, and the vertical part appears, from your pictures, very similar. Folding is different, the vertical part folds flat, then the small "wings" at the mounting holes flip in and that's it. The travel bag is about 4 and a half feet by 2 feet. Takes up the full width of the trunk.

Todays 's pictures,
A C70 with real people.
and from the side top up.
Today we had a funny "adventure".
We were top down and suddently we heared a big noise from the right back side, like if someone launched a stone on the car when we drove. Later we discovered on the back plastic cover a big piece of seabird shit mark (2 inches diameter)... This must be a really sick bird!
Driving top down can be dangerous...

Only one way to describe your pictures.....BEAUTIFUL!!
I guess I've been very lucky, no bird bombs on the interior, but several on the exterior. Fortunately, with Zaino on Goldie, they were easily removed with a spray bottle of water.

Glad to see I am not the only one posting pictures anymore.
Seeing yours I realized the license plate dimension and format in France fits better than the one in USA for the front and back locations on the car.
I never try to stop the closing or opening process, but obviously you can do it, your picture of the roof folding process is really nice.
