Fiber glass or steel doors

Post  snuff98 on August 10th 2017, 8:33 pm

How much weight can be saved by putting fiberglass doors on a 1985 t-bird with gutted steel doors with lexan?

Not sure on exact weight, but I can pick up my 98 Mustang fiberglass doors with lexan window, tubular window frame, latches and aluminum inner panel with my pinky finger!

I weighed my doors yesterday 45lbs each. I think that a set from Harryglass would be much lighter.

All my fiberglass came from Harry's. It is top quality parts. Did not require a lot of body work. I bought my parts in 1996. My doors came with a fiberglass window frame. I didn't like how they looked with it. We cut the fiberglass frame off and made tube steel window frames. If I get a chance I'll go weigh one of my doors.

Thanks I just don't want to go through the hassle if the weight savings are minimal.
