[DML] Re: Weight of stainless

Dani - 304 CRES has a density of 8.03 gm/cc, while soft steel (which 
most car bodies would be made from) has a density of 7.87 gm/cc.  
Other "normal" steels are around that same value.  What this means is 
that 304 CRES is a tad bit (2%) heavier than carbon steel.  However, a 
typical paint job weighs a bit too, so I think that it all comes out 
about even.  FWIW - The paint job on a 747-400 weighs about 800 ~ 900  
pounds.  I hope this helps.
