    Yes. When the aluminum prices settle down a bit.

    What's the weight of the steel vs aluminum bumper?

    I imagine he won’t know until he makes one. But significant...

    Aluminum could be as little as half the weight of steel.

    But can also be half again more expensive!

    Who knows though, his design is so minimal that maybe the steel version won’t be very heavy at all.

    Steel bumper will be about 95lbs, aluminum is around 35-40 lbs.
