Funny, seems like every time somebody puts one of these cars on a diet the A/C is the first thing to go. Doesn't weigh that much it seems.

PO of my car pulled the A/C.. completely, but decided to leave the comfy seats which weigh a ton to me.. Recaro model "C" w/leather, electric , w/heat.
My AC parts that got removed weighed 75 lbs, and I left the blower fan in the smuggler box and all the under the dash controls so I can still blow cabin air on myself when it gets hot. The air comes from that hole in the floor below the passagnger footwell.

So total weight is even higher. I left stuff in the car.

That seems like a decent chunk. In fact, it is the most weight you can remove at once. No other upgrade, including a fiberglass bumper, does as much at one time.

And it is free to remove it.

Weight removal is psychological for me anyway. I don't like weight, period. I want it gone.
