Replaced the not so great window replacment. Hole is for rear view camera. Still only 700g less than original. The new door at xmas should save 28kg so not such a time/gain this one. Should have more time next year, more doors and roof

Also on the doors the latch will be retained but the handle and hinges I will try and make

p.s I will also test the bolts, torque only clamp load is fine when I get a moment. Also buy an old rear box so I can copy it...

Making good stuff is so much easier and cheaper. Pattern stuff has to made to fit takes longer
