Every time I read about weight reduction, I'm at a loss Maybe gravity is more Up North here

I did the usual reduction - sparco seats (saved 100lb per pair), removed interior (sound deadening / rear seat/ carpet worth ~70-80lb from memory but the felt carpet add ~5lb back), "stripped" rear bumper (bumperette, bumper shocks, rubber strip etc. saved ~25lb), FG rear wing (saved ~40lb), A/C with all hoses (~65lb), battery (~30lb), B&B (probably saved 20lb) and custom 10lb muffler (another 20lb savings?). Still have all steel panels, glass & sunroof. The full bay interooler probably adds ~25lb up top And the full cage probably adds 130lb.

My car still weighs 2,860lb with 1/2 tank of gas. So I still have 660lb to go to get to 2200lb! Even with underbody coating removed, lexan all-around and FG hood, I'll probably be down to 2550lb? Where do I find another 350lb to remove?
