Default What's your altered weigh?

I'm trying to figure out what my car will end up weighing.

It's a 150 inch Bantam.
We will probably put a iron head bbc in it.

if you dont have scales to weigh the car, take it to a truck stop , unload your car and drive it on the scale and pay the charge

There is a couple of places in town I could probably do that, but I don't have a engine in it yet. I was just trying to figure out what it will weigh when done.

Thanks guys for the responses.

I seen one on the scales last yr. with a rat, that weighed 1630 no driver, so 1800lbs sounds realistic.

Zip.
