It should be rather light. 2800 lb raceweight would roughly be my guess depending on how much you weigh.

yea, i welded it in, a tack every inch or so. I also covered the wiper hole on the drivers side, but i think i may grind it back off and make a plastic cover that i screw on, just in case i need to get into the cowl from some stupid reason. Ill post up finished up pics later. Goin out for a few after all this damn work!
