yh61r is cool... so far.
Does anyone know the weight of a CB7 trunk and bonnet/hood?

I'm looking to install gas powered springs on both the trunk and bonnet/hood. For this I need to know the weight of both to determine the force of the springs needed.

Thanks!

I have an extra trunk lid handy that I tossed onto my bathroom scale. It isn't perfectly accurate but it said 30 lbs.
