ok, I got my rear wiper motor and all the plastic/rubber strip around hatch window off my nx. --altogether weighs 7lbs! nice reduction for 5 minutes of work and you don't hardly even notice it being gone.
I also removed about 1-1.5 sqare feet of that tar mat insulation that's stuck to everything--weighed 1lb, 2oz.--filled a small ziploc bag. I'll just go ziploc bag at a time until it's done.
Today I chiseled/drilled/wiggled brackets off--1.jack holder bracket--1lb.
2.rt. rear seat upper mount bracket(large)2lbs.
Plastic trim from BOTH triangle windows--3lbs.
I think I can save 25 pounds with a race seat,
40ish pounds by getting rid of the sunroof,
22-44 pounds by cutting out door bars (not sure of the weight, heard 11 pounds each and 22 pounds each),
20ish pounds from a small battery,
40ish pounds from lexan windows (yet to be installed),
and a few pounds from aftermarket suspension tweaks ( lowering springs which are shorter use less steel to make, right? Not sure how much weight can be saved buy replacing the stock gas tank with a trunk mount fuel cell yet, I'm guessing 8-10 pounds
If I go with a set of light wheels, 10-22 more pounds can be shed
adding a cage will add 36-50 pounds to the final weight

AC Comp Weight

Have seen huge numbers applied to the weight of our AC compressors, have removed two from different 1993 SE-Rs, and they both only weighed 12 pounds on a scale which is calibrated daily. Weight savings on this is not as much as imagined.
