Lets see...

i took out the stock windows..

bought the 2mm LEXAN (plastic´s)

placed the LEXAN on top of each of the windows &
marked the sizes.
& then i just cut the LEXAN.

very simple really. - since you never see the outer rim of the vindows
sue to the rubber seals & stuff, you dont need to have the lexan bits
exactly the right size.

Stronger - LEXAN is a form of MAKROLON -
Plexiglas is just sheer dangerous.

KristianAE86- How much weight did you save by chaging the front door glass and rear quarter glass to Lexan? I have been contemplating on doing this, but not sure of the weight savings. Thanks.

Hi Eric !


(nice place of work you have, if youré the guy working for Rhys)

changing all the windows (5pcs) except the windshield, for LEXAN, saves
about 80-85% in weight - (hatch window is HEAVY as stock)

best regards/
..................Kristian H - Sweden

PS: here in Sweden i can order 2 different whindshield´s..
On is 5,8mm / one is 5,2/3mm - This also saved about 1,5 kgs

Hello Kristian,
Yes I do work for Rhys. Thanks. I have removed my rear hatch and replaced it with a FRP one and a 3mm lexan rear window. I was thinking of changing the rear quarters and door windows. Do you happen to know of the weight of just those pieces? Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi !
,, nope, sorry i dont know thw exact weight savings...

but atleast 80% per window i´d say - perhaps 90% depending on how thick the LEXAN.
