Theres no way that hood weighs 150 lbs unless its made of iron lol. Fiberglass is a little heavier than carbon fiber but only like 5 lbs.
It does say shipping weight if that makes a difference...?

Id be interested in how much it really weights cause it looks really good

umm flyride alreadys did the weighing-its a fact

the last i saw fly ride did not weigh the stock hatch w/o the glass only with the glass and only weighed the c/f hatch w/o the glass and made a guess at the weight difference.

If he weighed both the bare c/f hatch and the bare OEM hatch or the oem hatch with the glass and the c/f hatch with the glass and i missed it please direct me to that.

BTW fiberglass is lighter or as light as C/F. Get your facts straight.

w3rd. fiberglass hoods are generally lighter beacause (1) fiberglass is lighter and (2) they dont need the same type of support skeleton.

c/f ownz fiberglass in strenght/weight ratio which is where most people get confused.
