That sounds great markl.
Like you said, there is still vibration apparent even after the mod. If you can make it even better - then I am anxious to see what else you think might help.
Good luck. And is it possible to rewire D2000 cable with D5000 cable? Is it something you can do yourself? Cause I am guessing you might have some extra laying around markl?
If availabe, then can I buy some from you?0
Also, if you are recabling all of the D5000s you buy, then why dont you just try buying a D2000 since it is the same except for the cups. And you are pretty much making the benefits of wood obsolete by adding so much dynamat? Also, maybe you could just buy a D2000 anyway to compare levels of vibration of wooden vs plastic cup. Because you stated you could feel the vibration by placing your hands on the outside of the cups, but no one with the D2000 has stated the same (as far as i remember).
