Don't get me wrong, i love the look of a nice shaved bay, but just confused as to why you went with this method....
I'm not worried about weight to be honest. The RB is already like 3 times heavier than a stock m20. And I bet my mounts alone are 30 pounds. I don't see a couple peices of sheet metal weighing me down.

Anyone else have rust under their fuse box? Geez I must have just cut out a foot of metal.
