    Door Panel weight

    Does anyone have a door panel off for whatever reason?
    Before I take mine off my 9 liter track car i just want to make sure it's even worth it. Everything is so light on this car. I'm guessing 6-7 lbs a side. But if it's over 10 i'll take mine off and cover with a carbon fiber sheet.

    That's 15lbs both side then. Pretty good. Can't anyone make a Carbon door panel where you could accommodate the electric windows and switches? I'd take one in a heartbeat....

    If someone took the time it could be quite “finished” looking too, similar to a Challenge Stradale door panel. Really shouldn’t be hard. Could probably open a lot of seat options too since width is always an issue.

    Yes sir, forgot to add a few small screw cover panels but it’s pretty close.

    Do you have any other interior parts off right now you could weigh?
    I've done the math on how much my cage is going to weigh, (130 lbs) so trying to see how much lighter the car will be now caged and gutted vs now.

    Thanks!
