The extra 100kg of weight would bother me though - do you feel it dynamically in the car? Obviously there's enough power to push it along, but more through the corners?

Sound wise, which was clearly your goal, that's a win. Now I wonder if you can hear police sirens as they chase you down...
Thanks P, don't really notice the extra weight tbh, maybe a bit slower to pull up when braking, but might just be my imagination. What has been a surprise is the car feels more planted all around. I think the overlapping butyl sheets are acting like a car shaped internal brace, stiffening up the body and floor Have not taken it out for a drive in the twisties yet but going through round abouts and corners, it def feels more solid #bonus

I really really hope, that's the very last time I ever have to strip the interior down to the metal
