About the extra cells that you want to solder together, if this is what you mean, I would vote against soldering and get a resistance welder that spot welds nickle strips to the cells, quickly, without heating the cells, which will have very detrimental effects on the cells.

If you are not sure about the inverter location, respond here and I will do some research for that location. I will also try to find a printout of the cables exiting the battery for the Volvo hybrid ? Does this image help you ?
Ive had my trunk dismanteld to the level of the pics ive posted. So far i did not had enough evidence to point out the main leads. I have filmed it and hope to upload it tomorrow.

This here is pioneerwork. This is never been done before. So not an easy task.

Hope it will work out.
Going to contact Volvo to hopefully get some help.
