Aside from what you have already done, which according to your description, is pretty extensive, there isn't much more to do without spending same big time $$$$.
I saw a completely carbon fiber driveshaft, about 19 lbf total weight, but it goes for just under $2000. There is a back seat delete kit, or hell, if you don't mind looking at bare metal behind you, just remove the seat altogether.
And while removing seats, the passenger side front seat can go too.
If you could care less about the radio, dump that and the speakers.
AC? The AC compressor, accumulator, AC plumbing, and even the dash ventworks can go.
These are all I can think of right now.
Oh, you can save a little more too, don't wear shoes and socks, or even clothes. Don't eat 24hrs before you drive, and make sure you take a wiz and a dump before you get into your car. LOL
