I never weighed the bare chassis. However one end is more than two old men want to pick up. I would guess the bare chassis weighs 6-7 hundred pounds. The whole car less water and gas weighed about 1800 lbs.

Good lookin chassis there Ed. Stiff is good when it comes to lakester chassis's, like a good stiff drink or a real stiff bone... well you know what I mean. grin  Looks like you might have the same problem I have with the shed being too short for the car. rolleyes

Sid,

     Bearingburner's car and garage in the pics, about 4 miles down off the ridge from my place.

     I'm just a team gopher with plenty of free advice.  My garage roof is the Hemlock beside my house,  AC from 3 sides over a natural floor   smiley

     Thanks for the compliment on the chassis.  Plenty of thought went into it along with info gained from many here on the forum.  Hopefully we get to see if function follows form well this coming season.

     I KNEW what stiff means, meds don't let me drink now and at my age can't do quite what I useta......  Good thing I got more than my share in when I could  grin

                                              cheers
