            But playglass is heavy, i have sheets of them 10mm thickness for do carbon fiber sheets and is not a light material.
            I would go before that with playwood, you could painted in black and that`s all, it will be much lighter than playglass, i don`t know what thinckness you will need, but is not an expensive material, so you can try until you find the correct thickness.

            About the wheel go for the Spinergys spox sport can hold until 350lbs the wide hub version, but you will need a speciall camber for the axle.
            I have them and gave them a test and are excellent wheels, specially if you are going to use them for a daily use.

              that's what i was thinking to do whit the Plexiglas to.as far as the spinergys this is my first pr i don't like the look of the spox,that's why i went whit the lx also i think the specs are for one wheel so if you have to is 500 pound is like when you by a jack that said one ton or two you are not lifting the hole car just one tire at a time? it took a long time for me to get this wheels the insurance never wanted to pay for them so i both this out of my on pocket and I'm not working anymore so it will be a while before i can spend that kind of $$

                Plexiglass will probably crack. You might try Lexan or UHMW. The UHMW would tear slowly before it broke. Its what they make all the bits on saturday night race cars out of: front grills, mud flaps. You can pick it up at race shops, by the foot, so its pretty cheap.
