Yes, the only weight savings I paid for was lighter rad support (especially since sway bar was being upgraded and radiator came out when blower was going in), mostly to make up for heavier front sway bar and lightweight battery (and home made alum battery mount), but not until my stock battery...
Irrelevant compared to most miles put on by the typical person on this board, with a low mileage (per year) toy. How many really run their 800 HP toy across country even once, let alone many times per year.

I'm a more go than show guy. The vinyl also lets natural light in, as I have 4' high clear panels running along the top

Did do 2" spray on insulation (don't want sheetrock), have no...
Got room for a fab shop? Nice to keep weld and grind splatter from flinging all over when possible.
(And great storage area on top, if you make it strong enough)
