One of the questions we've all asked so many times: How much weight exactly is there to be saved by going from steel to rope wire, well in my case with the following parts it was 9kgs:

13kgs for the wire and 4 for the rope, both with their respective types of fairlead

Anyone got a complete series door they can weigh?

Yes to the first half, no to the 2nd half... I'll try and remember next time I'm around the garage as I need to re-align my door anyway.

Not bad for a complete door really! If you have ever lifted a RRC door of you know what I mean ūüėā

Two door ones are very heavy, no wonder they wear the hinges and sag!

Front Doors

  1. Series door - a message to an ebay seller yielded a guesstimate of 5-10kg, but not sure.  17.5kg  - Glazed top 7.5kg (with 110 door mirror). Bottom with fixtures 10kg
  2. Pre-Puma door - 
  3. Puma Door - I've weighed at 26kg (with manual window, mirror and hinge)

Rear Door

  1. Pre 02 (square bottom glass corners) -  17kg with no door card or spare wheel mount - Thanks Giles.
  2. Post 02 (round bottom glass corners) - 23kg door card, glass, rear wiper and brake light but no wheel carrier

Info from the thread I started here:

Series doors all the way! especially since the push button usually fails the first time it meets a tree, where as the recessed door handles of a series (or early 90/110) will work regardless how bend the door is.

I like my widows  windows to go up and down sadly or the weight saving would have been nice. Might still get to that mind! :lol:
