      Something I've really wanted to know. Never come across an accurate weight.

      Please do advise!

        there are a few places out there that sell premolded S-chassis lexan, but it's stupid $$$. like $500 each or so.

        You can also go to 2nd chance race parts or racingmetal.com and buy new/slightly used NASCAR windshields for next to nothing and cut them down to size. lots of production and GT racers use them.

          You can get lexan MR-10 sheets for pretty cheap. Same stuff all those premade windshields are made with.

            Yeah, but for $25 + shipping for a pre-bent windshield, you can't lose.

                I called racingmetal.com. They have them but unfortunately they are too short. They are only 29.5" tall. The S13 measures 31" in the middle and 30" tall at the ends.

                        I'll try to remember to do this today when I'm home. I completely forgot last week.

                            Weighed one today. It's about 25 lbs (measured by difference in weight standing on a floor scale with and without the windshield)
