Prepped the plane for basic empty weight. Drained pilot side tank using the fuel pump so all I had left in each tank was unusable fuel. Installed cowling and removed unnecessary objects from cabin.
Used the EAA chapter scales to weigh the plane. Unfortunately, I had to level it due to the nose-high attitude from the addition of the nosegear spacer. I weighed it 4 times with the scales moved around. I will toss out the oddbal readings and average the ones that are close. Scale 3 would not zero out, so made sure to add correction to its reading. Haven't done the math yet.
