what about any of the other things i mentioned?
Mount brackets are easily within a couple ounces of each other. Trust me.
I've modified both for the aftermarket lights.
Maybe something with the various modifications you have done to both cars?
There are no weight inducing modifications on either car. In fact, most of the weight changes have slightly LIGHTENED the SSEi.
I'm stumped. On the phone with Marty, who has the other 95SLE in this topic, we can't account for any more than 75 pounds so far. I have the heaviest (due to options) SLE of it'* vintage, and he has probably the lightest. But we still can't find more than 75 pounds between my SLE and SSEi.
HUD windshield doesn't weigh more. It just has one LAYER inside the glass that'* shaped differently (thicker at the bottom than the top). This is a polymer (plastic) layer.
Compass module (light)
Misc ducting (2 pounds)
Front and rear bumpers and rockers (50 pounds max)
rear speakers (5 pounds max).
I'm seriously at a loss. Great topic though!
