If you haven't gutted the front bumper, there's weight to be lost there too.
Still have the stock hood that I gutted but still weighs 30lbs, so Could probably save another 25lbs with a composite hood. And you're right about the fenders, I just molded overtop of the stock fenders so I could save some more weight by making full fiberglass fenders. Good thinking! Also want to get rid of the stock metal valance and get a fiberglass bumper.

Don't forget Chris that 1/2 tank of gas is about your car weighs 2300 dry... Although dry, your weight balance is going to be worse too!
This is true.
