Plexiglass, no. That's to expensive for the results that I would have...

As for the rearview mirrors, yes, I'm looking for some cheap motorcycle ones (2nd hand...) since the stock ones are huge.

For now I'm still testing this very cheap (yet effective) solution with auto adhesive foil, quick to remove, and with no side effects

As for weight reduction, that not one of my goals. Since I'm not the only one driving the car, it will remain close to "stock", able to stand as is was in the beginning.
Keep it green!
