How much does a stripped out shell weigh?

Hi Guys,

We have decided to do a full strip down of our Series 3.
We are in the process o making up a rotisserie to mount the chassis too.
Just trying to get an idea of what sort weigh we need to be accounting for.

I couldn't tell you exactly how much they weigh, but i can tell you that once they are completely nut and bolt stripped, both me and my brother can pick one up. Dont get me wrong, were not hench ass body builders so it is a struggle. But that would lead me to believe that 2 engine stands should be strong enough to make a custom rotisserie.

Hope this helps :D

Good luck!
