Another weight reduction thread

What's your baseline? How extreme are you willing to go? (ie are you trying to maintain streetability?) I think in order from easiest to hardest:

remove rear seat
race seats
lightweight wheels
lightweight battery
aftermarket exhaust
remove all carpeting, including trunk
carbon fiber body panels
sunroof delete
lexan rear window

I'm sure there's much more but at this point all that's left is removing the interior. I'm sure others can chime in.

well right now it weighs 3425 thats without me and a 1/2 tank of gas

that was with full interior but with unneeded engine bay crap removed, light wheels, and no cats or mufflers

i plan on removing the rear seat and the panels in the rear seat as well as all trunk lining

i may do front racing seats, and battery but i have heard bad things about lightweight batteries in this car

with a lightweight battery you're compromising your dd ability and use of electronics

Removing all unnecessary interior parts is a good start, all free!
