Hello.

I just got the rear glass replaced on my 2004 Z06. I was wondering, is there any difference between a HT's glass and the Z06 version?--is the Z06 any lighter? If so, how can I tell they put on the right glass for my car?

Thanks guys.

The rear window on all FRC/Z06's are the same, Just the front windshield is thinner on the 2001 and newer Z06's. :cheers:

I defer to your expertise but I was under the impression that ALL the glass on our Z06's is thinner than that of the FRC's and coupes. Is my impression wrong?

That was my impression, too.

I was under the impression only the 2001 Z06 windshield is a thinner piece.

2002 on went to regular Coupe glass.

I stand by statement that "The rear window on all FRC/Z06's are the same, Just the front windshield is thinner on the 2001 and newer Z06's"

I do agree that the 2001 windshield was a few onces lighter than the 2002 and later Z06's because they were non hud. However the 2002 and later Z06 windshields have a different part number than the coupes and verts windshields. The side glass is all the same. :cheers:

Ah -- any word as to whether the C6 Z06 get's this kind of special treatment?

What does that rear hatch weigh? 100lbs? ;)
