Where's the Boron in a Volvo C70?

Ron Moore from the University of Extrication sent me this photos a few months back from a 1998 Volvo C70 that he cut up.  Ron found a hollow Boron pipe inside the A-pillar that actually bends and is inserted into the rocker. You would have to completely cut through this at the base of the A-pillar when doing a dash roll or dash jacking.  While the C70 is a convertible, don’t let that fact drop your guard and think that it will be a routine extrication.
