How much did the old trunk lid weigh? This looks like a really fun project. Seems like a lot of weight was lost just in the seats and that trunk lid.Today I picked up my 7 pound trunk sent from axis power racing. The quality is excellent, it just needs some block sanding and primer to get it ready for paint. I will leave the inside raw. It has a small duck tail built into it. I believe I can bolt everything from the original trunk over, I may leave out the actuator.
It is amazing how light this thing is!
