yes sir....And everyday, I keep finding more crap to take off....be it, a few grams, ounces, or 1 pound, it all adds up!

THe lack of weight is amazing.

Can you... like... fab up a bellypan??

I think it'd make the car even slipperier :)

I've got a box here that I've been putting small metal pieces in, that have come off the car....these are just little pieces of this and that, that I'm able to cut off, which serve me no purpose on this car....reason I'm typing this, it goes to show you how much weight can come off a car when you finally sit down and look it over real good....of course having the car completly apart helps too ;)

I would post pics, but my new cpu isn't allowing me to download pics from my camera....

If your planning to put a roll cage might be better to weld it directly to your boddy while your at it
you know, I thought about that....I'm still undecided though....I'm not sure if its okay with NHRA regulations.....I'll have to check.
