Got more work done tonight - gutted the two driver side doors.

Front door starting weight - 53lbs
Front door ending weight - 27 lbs (26 lb weight savings!!!)

Rear door starting weight - 45 lbs
Rear door ending weight - 21 lbs (24 lb weight savings!!!)

I can't believe how much was in there - after doing all 4 doors, I will have taken another 100 lbs out of the car [disclaimer- i will still need lexan installed so in actuallity, the weight savings won't be 100lbs, but it will still be close!]

Awesome! Though, I see some sound deadening on there still.

So you've probably compensated for your front cage addition just in the doors. I bet there will be some more sheet metal that's made useless by the cage that you can take out as well.

Yup - too tired to get it out. Will do it for sure though.

I dunno - I have a feeling my front cage will weigh in the area of 150lbs with all the reinforcements and such.

Although i still need to remove the rear glass too. Also, the hood will be lighter, the trunk will be lighter...

I really think my 2500lb goal for next year is feasible!

Also, I need to come up with a new name for the car. Right now it has been nicknamed "the green monster"

Any ideas for when it goes satin black?

I dunno, in my hands, yes you could kick my ass..

If you drove both, I bet the vette would win.
