Landfill sites? Tool hire depot? Haulage depot? Throw them a few quid and get yourself on the weighbridge.

There's public weighbridges around. http://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/upload/public/attachments/550/LISTOFLI.pdf (assuming you're in Grantham!)

I took my Nova into one near Chelmsford, chap there looked a little surprised but was happy to weigh it. Didn't charge me anything.

I've just googled a list for Essex, and apparently the one I went to charges a tenner a time. I think they're set up for trucks etc, probably why he looked surprised at a ratty GTE bouncing in. LOL

No idea if they will actually let you, but VOSA testing stations (the ones that do VICs etc.) have weighbridges.

If you claim its to weigh your car to confirm towing legality, they might be persuaded. But I think the chances of them telling you to "f**k off" will still be very high.

I'm pretty sure there is a VOSA testing station just outside Grantham on the A52? Unsure

Might be worth popping by to see if they will do it.

When I had mine corner weighted in came in at 988kg with a half cage in it, totally stripped out, with only the dash and heater left in it, along with 2 fixed bucket seats.

Weight distribution after adjustment was 50/50 cross axle, and 65/35 front to rear.

My race car weighs 1025kg without me.

That's with Perspex windows to the rear hatch and side, and the original metal bonnet and hatch and doors not cut out.

Still using the original Cyclones as well. Will cut the doors and rear hatch about this winter to lose a bit more weight.
