I have a some plans in my head, as there is a lot of stuff on the Mk1 that I have not looked at in detail yet? All the studs and bolts in the eng are in Ti or back drilled also all the roll cage bolts are Ti which is a big saving in its self. I would like to know how much a safety devices bolt in 6point cage is with dash and door bars.

I have a 2 skin rear boot and I think it's 6.50kg as I have been thinking of getting a arc angels 2 skin boot as I think there fit should be good?

Simon.

Would be interested to hear what the boot is like when you get it. Here's some weights of my Safety Devices 6 point bolt-in cage etc.

 

Roll Cage Rear with diagonal (not including nuts, bolts or plates) = 15 kg

 

Roll Cage Inner Floor Plates Main Hoop Pair = 0.646 kg

 

Roll Cage Outer Floor Plates Main Hoop Pair = 0.377 kg

 

Roll Cage Main Hoop Nuts, Bolts & Washers x 10 = 0.380 kg

 

Roll Cage Inner Floor Plates Rear Legs Pair = 0.697 kg

 

Roll Cage Outer Floor Plates Rear Legs Pair = 0.268 kg

 

Rear Roll Cage Legs Nuts, Bolts & Washers x 6 = 0.228 kg

 

Front Roll Cage Includes Nuts, Bolts & Washers (not floor bolts or plates) = 9.502 kg

 

Roll Cage Inner Floor Plates Front Legs Pair = 0.895 kg

 

Roll Cage Outer Floor Plates Front Legs Pair = 0.275 kg

 

Roll Cage Front Legs Nuts, Bolts & Washers x 6 = 0.228 kg

 

Roll Cage Door Bars Pair (Including all Brackets, Nuts, Bolts & Washers) = 5.0 kg

two things, i must note. You dont seem to have a weight for the aerial hole in the left wing and as the Mini is British, surely the weight should have been done in pounds and ounces? i dont understand all this new money?

 

 

 

Good job so far though LOL

Hi Yoda, I would imagine the aerial hole would be approximately minus 12 grams, that’s about .42329 ounces in old money ;D

 

Being old myself, I almost done everything in pounds and ounces, but then thought most people probably use metric now. I also thought about doing both, but that would be way too much work O_O

Hi, just thought I'd let you know that my stock 1991 Mini Mayfair 998cc weighs 678kg.

This is with spare wheel, red light on fuel, wheel brace, jack.

depends on the fluid.. all fluids have a specific gravity. or more commonly 'relative density' its a metric measurement, realting a unit of fluid to a weight. The base unit is H20, with a value of 1. therefore a litre of freshwater weighs a kilo

 

ie. relative density of diesel is 0.85... a litre of diesel weighs 850 grams. salt water is 1.03 i think... 1030 grams per litre etc. cant remember petrol but its lower than diesel i think

 

thats why when you spill oil/fuel into a body of water, it all spreads out on the surface... the water is heavier than the oil so it stays at the bottom :)

If it's just the block and crank, I would guestimate 48kg
