    Took off door panels (in my Sedan front and back), rear seats, deck panel, headliner, dome light, removed all panels in trunk, spare tire, jack, front passenger seat, a pillar molding, kick panels, center console, e brake console. That's about it.

    man i would hate to have to put all that back. i wanted to keep my interior looking nice so i only took out the spare tire, tools, cargo covers (from my hatch), and my passenger seat. doesnt sound like much but all that weighs about 100lbs.

    I just scraped up all of the sound deadening crap form my 94 hatch. Not real hard to do, but time consuming. Just take up the carpet and use a long flat head screw driver and start peeling it up. I put it all in a trash bag, probably weiged 25 to 30 pounds. Good time to pressure wash your carpet too. U could also leave the carpet out it ways a ton..

    Only pulled out crap I didn't need. Power steering and all it's plumbing, the entire A/C system... condenser, compressor, dryer, cores, pipes, weighed a ton. I also dropped a few pounds when I put my headers in. Stock manifold is HEAVY, pitched it and took a chunk out of the sidewalk. Also got aftermarket wheels that weigh about 4 to 5 pounds less at each corner.
