My 01 needs new bodywork all around to make it perfect again(bought it wrecked). the cost of all new stock plastic and a tank is pretty close to aftermarket QB carbon carbon bodywork. My question is once the carbon bodywork is painted, is the weight savings significant? or should I just put it back stock?

Well I just totalled up my options, and for me to make my 01 a beautiful "faster" vivid cocktail red, or to make it a qb carbon R7/1 the price comes out within 3 dollars of eachother. looks like I'll have a carbon R7/1 by spring. :rock
