Wind noise, do you have a solution?
Wind noise in the CTS has been mentioned few times here and there. Some suggested to use another layer of foam in the doors.
Can anybody please suggest a solution along with a picture if you have implemented it ? Thanks a lot, and i am sure it will be a good reference for others.

Re: Wind noise, do you have a solution?
Just saw a possible solution of TV. If you have some strip calk (can be purchased from Eastwood) first you can test the weatherstripping with a folded dollar bill. Where the dollar bill is loose or pulls out, mark the spot with some masking tape, after checking the entire door, pull out the rubber stripping and put some calk in next to the body and weatherstripping. Then recheck to see if the sealing is improved. You can remove the calking, if you apply too much, but its messy, cleanup is easy with WD 40. Apply the WD 40 to clean, otherwise is applied directly it will dissolve the WD 40. Let me know how it works.
