The car is at the chassis shop,so I told them to scale it.
Any one want to take a guess at the weight and percent's ?
It's no lightweight.

93 LX hatch
What added weight,9.5 dart block,T56 Magnum,quick time bell,6 point
c/m bar with kickers to the sub frame connectors,welded t/b
reinforcements, 2 battery's in the back,40 lb of tools and misc.
2 ,10lb plates under the spare,just over a half tank of fuel,full
interior,factory sunroof,6 heavier replacement speakers,updated
alternator and wiring. That's all that comes to mind that added weight.
The big aluminum rad probably adds water weight.

Some weight loss,alternator is the only driven item. Glass hood,
m/m front coil overs,team z, k frame,solid motor mounts,front sway
bar removed,weld drag lites,bias ply tires.

I have no idea on the weight,guessing 54/46 ?

Kind of funny to see this thread bumped up this morning. As I was thinking
about posting up on some weight reduction stuff. Keeping it street friendly,
and loosing a substantial amount of weight,is a hard line to walk.
