someone needs to make another site then

step 1: remove AC/PS
step 2: remove all carpet
step 3: CF hardtop with lexan rear window
step 4: 14" RPF1
step 5: aluminum shock bodied coilovers (Stance AL+ for example)
step 6: flush-mount headlights

feel free to add on. We're going for the lightest possible weight. Not practicality.

I'll add to this .

Remove wiring for the following :


headlight retractor motors





Hvac control

Door ajar buzzer

Ebrake light

after you've done this , relocate wiring to the passenger side . You'll lose mote weight by shortening wires( few will need to be extended)

Go keyless , use a push start button

wire your headlights and turn signals to a toggle switch .

Remove door windows

replace triagle door winos with lexan

Remove undercoating

gut trunk ,remove hinges and use pins

remove bumper supports , trim rear bumper

cut dash in half( or remove)

I'll add more later
