Very good question, I also installed all my leather and carpet interior panels while I was up there. I guess about 40 lbs total, but I will be weighing the plane this weekend and will post it here.

Did they paint the interior also? And, if so, did you do any priming to the exposed interior parts? The paint job looks awesome by the way, congratulations!

I painted the interior while I was building the fuselage. I just scuffed all the panels and used Rustoleum 2x satin granite.

Absolutely, I am excited to recommend them! You won't find much info about painting on their website yet, since they are just going public with it. But they are definitely in the business. Here is the website....

They are great people, and RV-12 experts with a super talented painter!!
