Ya totally We measured everything with a digital fish scale.

So the two halves, before combining together weighed 11lb 14oz.

The fairing, combined - 12lb 15oz.

If you include the hatch hinge mechanism - 13lb 9oz

My personal goal was less than 15lb with a target weight of 12lb... Hot damn close if you ask me If we had more time to optimize our rib structure we could have 1)used less and 2)shaved off a pound, maybe a little more.
Cars have not created a new problem. They merely made more urgent the necessity to solve existing ones.
