Re: weight of top and upper \'glass doors

At a guess.. 225-275 lbs for the hardtop..

The upper doors wont be heavy.. unless they have real glass.. in which case maybe 25ish lbs each.

and the hard top has gotta be almost 6ft long, 3ft high, and 58 odd inches wide..


Thats all a guess.. but its better then nothing.

Re: weight of top and upper \'glass doors

It's just a guess, but it normally takes 2 people to pull off a top.. unless I'm helping in which case it's 3 because i have girly arms. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

the glass is what weighs a lot.. and the whole thing is rear end very heavy.. its odd when you pick one up, because you stand like a foot from the back, and 5ft from the front, and then it balances perfectly.
