Jim from Optic Armor emailed me and said the 3/16 front glass and 1/8 rear glass together saves 40 lbs over stock. Taking 1/16 off the rear window can't possibly remove 16 lbs so I'm thinking your scale isn't giving accurate info.

Doc you've been suggesting it for a long time and your absolutely right! I'll get one soon.

I am really liking how this is looking. Still need to clean up all the seam sealer.

Here is the logo we are going to bead roll into the center of the panel. I think it will look killer!
