lol, same thing almost with my rimz yo



You took out your amp? Why dont you take out those verticle side carpets and speakers then?

Also, you dont need those black plastic side things over your battery and such. Also dont need the lights that light your trunk, those come out relatively easily.

I don't really care for going that far. I don't want any bare metal. Once its nice enough for me to drive I'll start working on my rear seat delete.

You know that the real reason to loose the rear seat is because of the rear firewall. Which on most models is built into the rear folding section. Since you don't have the rear folding section and your firewall is built into the car you really aren't loosing much weight.

If I had a scale I would weigh it all, the seats I wanna say weight about 45lbs. It all adds up, so If I put a roll bar in its going to equal out weight loss to 0.

I really want those seats now

I'm just saying that the majority of the weight is in the fire wall. You can loose 45 lbs in a battery.

Edit: and you wont feel the difference of 45 lbs but I know what you mean. It does all add up and you have to start somewhere.
