Default On A Diet - Weight Reduction Tips

Sorry. Wasn't sure where to post this?

I have a 2007 GT. Can anyone recommend weight loss tips? How can I go about removing the rear seats? Thanks in advance.

Aluminum Driveshaft, and radiator support bar will help with weight loss. There is a rear seat delete kit that you can get from some of the sponsors of this forum.

Are you just looking for a couple of somewhat minor mods to drop weight, like a lightweight radiator support? Or are you looking to do some hard-core weight shaving via things like Lexan Windows, CF Doors, Race Seats, etc?

Just minor stuff. The car still needs to remain street legal here in CA.

No offense to the OP intended. But if you are carrying around some extra weight yourself... Pretty easy to get rid of that.

Are those cloth seats any lighter than leather ones? Any clue?
