The weight of both plates are 4,7 kilos. Not too crazy if you consider putting on that weight over the holidays;)
But my main focus was not just weigth reduction but better air flow.
The charger has an idiotic design where the cooling fan ins on the front centre sucking in air… and releasing the hot air in the front again in an angle. In my book this means that the hot air gets circulated nicely back into the fan as the cooling holes are below. So I created a current flow with small flaps to lead the moving cold and hot air.
so far the front plate has been designed.
I have also cosidered extending the cover at the rear end ( right side as you see it) over the charger to battery connector that is exposed to road water and dirt.
See length of current cover and mine.
There will be rubber weather stripping added in the front and flaps to keep rain spray out,
