I have been looking at the same thing. From what I understand, with a glass hatch and lexan you drop about 40+ pounds.

Total I am going to save about 30 or so lbs. No where near 60+ lbs. At some point I can probably save another 4 lbs if I went to a thinner piece of Lexan. But the weight loss is nowhere near what I had expected.

I used my Longacre scales to weigh the stock rear hatch. The rear hatch had the spoiler removed, the wiring for the rear defroster and 3rd brake light. Also the rear lift struts and brackets were also removed. Lest I forget, the plastic interior trim was also gone. I know the rear struts and brackets weighed 2 lbs, I assume another lb or so from latch and wiring. I forget how much the stock Saleen Whale tail rear wing weighed, but I know the Scott Rod rear wing I installed weighs only 6 lbs.
