Re: Sunroof delete

Yeah just did:

Casette: 15#
Sunroof: 12#
all other junk (I had a Manula crank roof): 6#

And then the headliner and liner for sunroof, so it's about 35# all up. Im guessing my composite replacement piece will be 2.5#

Maybe a good product for you to fab... a more simplistic version, unpainted, drill your own shock bolt holes, provision area to tie your roll bar to it etc.
