i'm looking to get it as light as possible while looking decent inside and out. i'm not going to gut it or go extreme, but i will be making some sacrifices. right now i have 0$ to work with, but maybe one day that'll be different. there are probably 10-20lbs of brackets throughout the car that can be replaced by zip ties or plastic substitutes of some sort.
how do you remove your windsheild washer fluid jug? i got up underneath there and i still couldn't figure out how it was attached. there are two bolts that hold the battery holder in place, but it doesn't touch the washer fluid resoviour.
stock race weight: 3,170lbs
