Hey folks. Finally got the right tools to remove the front bumper so I decided to remove the steal beam
No more steel beam
Im no rocker science man but I think that bracket that use to hold up the beam is good enough protection in a frontal crash
Im 180 pounds. Heres me holding the beam. Only 20 pounds but still every bit counts.
A few months ago I removed the rear beam. I also figure that bracket thingy is good enough protection. It was 23 pounds.
Heres all my undercarpet sounddeadening gone. About 15 pounds.
If you dont have a long drive to work might as well ditch the spare and jack. Jack and bar is about 8 pounds. The little *** spare surprised me. About 31 pounds
I also ditched my engine cover and hood insulation. I figure thats a pound or 2.
Added all up Thats about 99 pounds gone.
So I guess if anyone else wants to do this lose 1 pound and thats 100 pounds right there. Dont try so hard losing that 1 pound cause Im sure your sexy.
Or just get a light weight battery. Those save 28 pounds.
There you go they say 100 pounds is 10 horse power .1 or 14 feet in the quarter and a 3% MPG gas savings.
