well, recently, I've been dissecting all the unnecessary wires...I'm gutting the doors, taking out all the power window crap, cutting the inner door material out, removing all power lock stuff....replacing the inside door skin with very thin sheet metal...beleive it or not, the wiring in the car adds up a ton, but since its a track only car, and carbed, I can take out a bunch of wires I don't need....only wires that are going to be left are for lights, brakes and blinkers(in case I drive down the road for a bit).
I'm removing all the sound deadening, cutting away unnecessary panels(like where the rear side speakers mount), I know its not a whole lot of weight, but it adds up over time.
I'm probably not removing as much weight as I'm thinking, its just very time consuming, and it feels like it should be more than I'm doing.
I'm also moving my battery back up front with a lighter weight one, and taking out the huge 1/0 power cable I had running from front to back.
hope this helps, as I'm sure you've done most of this already...
