Two factors here are ..... the depth of your wallet AND the PITA factor .....was wondering what type of weight advantages does a fiberglass door w/ lexan have over a gutted factory steel door w lexan? 3rd gen camaro
I haven't touched a set of 3rd gen doors, and I don't believe anyone makes them in carbon (maybe Hairy Glass does?), but I would estimate based on other doors of similar size and design that the stock doors, gutted, with crash bars still in are probably around 45 pounds each. A glass door is going to be about 14-16 pounds each, but weight (and quality) can vary widely between manufacturers when it comes to fiberglass AND carbon parts. If someone did carbon doors, they'd probably be 9-10 pounds each. So, you're looking at about a 60-pound weight savings for the pair by going with fiberglass, 70 with carbon fiber, unless you really want to Swiss cheese your metal doors, which might save you another 10 pounds total.is that 30-40 lbs on each side gutted steel doors over stock steel doors or 30-40 pounds gutted doors heavier than fiberglass doors?
