I really like how the little bit of weight reduction made the hatch feel opening and closing myself. Notice it as well?

Also, my 2 clips broke when I took them off. I replaced them with these:
I'd like to color match eventually, but at least it's on tighter. Without them, there isn't too much difference. Never fell off. Maybe it rattled, but I never noticed.

They are good for a lot of replacements throughout the car.
Thanks for the compliment and also for all the info that you gave me on how to do this. You deserve credit for the write up as well!

Yeah, it certainly makes it a lot nicer to open and close the hatch. over 2.5 lb at the end of the hatch really makes a difference.
