    dont know how accurate this list is, but it should be of some help in terms of what you can do for weight reduction in a civic.

    some of the stuff he did made the car almost un driveable. If you strip the thing down, dont remove the gaugecluster, dash (safty first) and stuff like that. Stuff like removing interior body panels, carpet, sound reducing tar, radio, speakers, ac, light weight seats (a 2 seater is a pain, 1 seater would be even worse) cf hood, cf body panels, cf doors if you would like to remove one of your nuts (shit load of money) fiberglass rear hatch. All of these things add up and they can keep you car still streetable, but for anything CF, expect to spend tons of money.
