Great idea for a thread, Todd. Interesting that the entire sunroof assembly is only 30lbs though. Ive heard a lot of numbers closer to 50. Kinda makes me want to hold off on spending $400ish to plug the sunroof w/ cf.

the rears are pretty light to me... I'd say 15lbs or so..... I would weight them for you guys if needed (my car is semi-gutted atm) so I got the rear seats out, the front passenger, the bose amp and possibly gettin rid of the bose wiring system out!... also door panels and quarter panel cover.

just let me know.

Let's not guess.
The "estimates" I found elsewhere is what inspired me to start thread.
Please actual weight only.
i may weigh each front seat (base, no bose amp) monday for you

EDIT: great thread idea btw. i'm interested. subscribed for future use

Ep3 Not a Dc5, but very similar :eek:
I don't remember...Every item exactly where they were :(

Chassis bracing includes the bar under the rear seats and the brackets on either side, and some others...Its been years :eek: Sorry

I almost wonder if a c-pillar bar and rear H bar would make up enough to just remove that bar completely when you go race.

im in! this looks like a really interesting thread

underside hood liner
left and right fender liner
3lbs (1.5lbs each)
Do you think your hood liner was oil soaked or wet when you weighed it? 4 Lbs. seems like a lot of weight. I will enter it as 4 Lbs.

I think the fender liners have an aerodynamic purpose so I would leave them on, IMHO.

Thank you all, this list is coming together nicely.

See post #2 for the wish list of weights.

imbest123, go ahead and weigh your battery. Do not worry about it being a bit low on water.
