    I have exactly 1 question. Why?

    Even if you do strip it down to a rolling shell and make that goal, 4,000lbs is STILL a f-ing tank.

    1/4" lexan (about . 22 thick) is about 1.5 lbs/square foot. Glass the same thickness is about 3.2 psf. I don't know how thick our sunroof is, but I guess around 1/8" thick.

    Lexan (polycarbonate) is not light.

    Shit, what happened to my post? Anyway, I went on to say 1/4" nominal lexan is about 1.5 psf vs. glass at twice that at same thickness.
