Have any idea how much it saved over factory glass?

Two quarter windows and rear....

Thanks

About 1/2 the weight of glass.

I really don't recall how much I saved on mine off the top of my head.

I'm almost finished with my lexan project.

I got the rear window made this weekend and plan to finish things up tonight. Trim is going back on.

I did the quarter windows last week.

Only saved 13 lbs. though.....but I guess 13 is better than none, huh.

Thanks John,

I used 3/16" and I know it doesn't show it, but I even countersunk the holes for the #8 flat head screws.

I used stainless steel, 1" long screws and 3/8" x 1/2" adhesive foam tape.

Pretty easy job if you ask me.

Thanks for all your advise and tips.
