I was reading some write ups on Ls1tech and decided to remove a few things from the car. I removed the windshield wiper assembly, The passenger side air bag, heater box, foglight housings, and finally installed my new steering wheel. I snapped a few crappy pics afterwards. Next weekend I'm installing my UMI k member. Lost 35 lbs from the heater box w/ ducting, 6 lbs from stock wheel w/ airbag, 14 lbs from wiper assembly, and 18 lbs from the pass. airbag. 73lbs removed for free not including the door bars, fog lights or front speakers. Not bad for a few hours of work. Thanks for looking.

New Grant steering wheel.


Windshield wipers gone.


Heater box gone.


Wiper assembly and foglight housings.


Airbags, stock wheel, heater box, and ducting.


Also started removing the door supports which I will probably finish tonight

was the 12.20 i ran in your car still the fastest run or did you get it faster than that already..? :driving:
that car is going to move out with all the weight you've taken out of it... " u sure you don't need the wipers?"

I have a few Nitrous parts and pieces laying around if you wanna hit the 11.5 class for no bull... :yesnod:

12.20 is still the fastest its gone, that was when it was full weight and street tires. My goal is to get the car under 3k lbs with a cage in it.

I haven't put it on a scale yet, I've been taking A LOT of stuff out of the car lately, and I'm changing some suspension stuff around, and also installing a VFN hood, swisscheesed kirkey seats, along with front and rear blacked out speedglass. Once all that is done I'm going to weigh the car.
