Default Weight of trimmed Parma Alfa?

I just got done painting a Parma Alfa (trimmed for a TC4) and I was surprised at how heavy it felt... and it's weighing in at about 100 grams.

Anyone have any idea how much it might have weighed after trimmed and fitted to the body, but without paint?

I wonder how much mass I added with all my paintin'

Bob, I have a trimmed, unpainted Parma Alfa body with alum (wing) screws and nylon nuts sitting on my scale at 100g even.

Most 190mm bodies are about 100-104g painted. 110g for 200mm bodies.

Bob, I'm running an Xray FK with the 4 hole foam front shock tower. It keeps me from slamming my Parma any lower so I have an extra 2-3mm of body overhang. Plus my wheel wells are cut small since I run small diameter foams. I cut the wing so the side walls hang about 10mm lower too. So I may have more laxan left on my body than yours. But I am using an Ohaus Explorer precision scale that's usually used by jewelers and lab techs. It's accurate to about .003g. Unless you're using house paint, I personally wouldn't sweat the weight. You're in the ball park.
