I'm at -240 lbs currently, think at least another 100 lbs off with exhaust and bumper modification.

I still have to weigh the stuff I took off to rebuild the pedal cluster, doubt the center console is going back in.

Some may find this link useful, sent to me via PM by "frankc" five years ago, just printed it out yesterday, punched holes in it and put it in a binder.

Installed REVV shifter. Polished the shift tower. Feels nice and solid. Puts the shifter right where I wanted: a little higher and slightly forward.

My car is down to 2250 wet, with a half tank of fuel. Cutting another 100lbs without perforating the chassis or spending big bucks is going to be a challenge. And I've made it that much more challenging by retaining the stock (ok, modified) aluminum IBs.

I just paid for some parts that I reckon will lead to a ~4-6lb weight loss off the back. I'll have details in my build thread after they arrive.
For now, I'm waiting on the laptop battery to charge and I'm heading out for a tuning run. (dialing in rapid pedal fluctuation, like in auto-x or running from the cops)

I replaced my old and patched muffler with a Monti muffler. I started yesterday evening. I was able to remove all the flange bolts without too much fuss. Sockets didn't really fit well so it was two wrenches, a hammer, and a cheater bar. This morning I took the off bumpers, and rear license plate panel. Unfastening the muffler mount is not easy since the bolts are down in a crevasse. After challenging my dexterity it all came apart. I'm not a great mechanic but I just go slow and try all of my tools until it gets done.

Every project I take on I discover something the PO did that has to be corrected. On this project, the PO used SAE bolts. Not criminal but the holes were sized for metric. There is a home made sub plate behind the license plate panel. It was just wedged in place with no fasteners. One of the bumper captive nuts was missing. The bolt was just dropped in a threadless hole.

I buy extra hardware from Belmetric and McMaster. I'm glad I do because I can fix some things when they are discovered. I have press-in captive nuts on hand and used those to fix the bumper mount and sub panel.

I took the car for a test drive on Guadalupe Canyon Parkway. Its one of the roads the Bullitt chase scene was filmed on. It is a short canyon road with a hill climb and some sweeping turns. The car ran great. The muffler is so much better than the old. Gone is the annoying drone at 4000 rpm. Gone is the unbearable screaming at higher revs. One more thing checked off the list

My 912E build.

Oh my bad. I wasn't aware there was a time scale I have to build by.

I'm not rich like some of you guys with loads of fu(k you money laying around that I can just pay someone to do everything for me whenever I want.

I've also built 3 other cars and one Harley from the ground up and remodeled my house myself in those 3 years. on top of running my own business.
