I didn't see the point of keeping the rear tray cover up and it was kind-of bulky, so I removed it. It looks like its a seat back with plastic covering and weighs about as much. However, that leaves the stuff in your rear tray to fly around while your driving (unsecured ballast).

So I used some carbon fiber panel that I had lying around to make a rear tray cover. It's two layers of 5.7oz 3K Plain Weave over a 1/8" vinyl core hinged with a couple of strips of velcro. Looks good, doesn't vibrate and weighs almost nothing.

You could do the same thing with 1/8" fiberboard if you're short on carbon fiber panel:pP:.

Interesting. I only keep soft items in the trays (jacket, sweatshirt, and umbrella) however i do keep the 'seat' up however i am not worried about items "fly(ing) around". I am not out racing around corners so things don't move around in the trays.

The weight savings on the other hand interests me.

Funny guy. I apologize for my faux pas. I wasn't aware that I was attempting to communicate with the upper echelon of academia.

Please ban me for using a word twice in the same sentence.

Hey come on.. I know you have a sense of humor.. I have seen it in action! :thumbsup:

Or at least I think I have! (although at that, your reply could be taken as reflecting a very dry, almost British, sense of humor... but I am not sure!) You aren't the sarcastic type, are you?:rolleyes:

:hi5:

Looks really good. But no go for me. My dogs like the back and the unevenness wouldn't work with how they lay in the back.
