    Rear Window Regulators, wiring, mounting panel, and hardware : 7lbs each (14 total for both sides)
    Rear Door Panels : 6.5lbs each, or 13lb for the pair
    Front Door Panels: 10Lbs each, 20lbs for the pair.

    Also scraped off about 90% of the sound deadening panels withing the interioir floor, wheel wells, doors, and Trans Tunnel. Threw it all in a box and I am at about 12lbs so far. I was surprised to see that much weight from just sticky pads. I still have the front doors, behind the dash, and tunnel padding to remove. Figure about 13-14lbs total in that stuff.

    Car lost almost another 60lbs this weekend!

    Sunroof Assembly: Track, Glass, Motor, Wiring and Hardware: 27lbs

    Fabricating a custom delete panel using 5mm Plastic, L-brackets, SS hardware, and Exterior grade RTV. Will likely upgrade to carbon fiber or fiberglass panel in the future when the budget allows. (5lbs)

    Great way to take weight off the highest point, pics to come.
