    What stuff weighs

    Over the last few years I've been waging a war against my car's portliness. I've shaved hundreds of pounds and using both 4-wheel scales and a more sensitive postal scale I've weighed just about everything I have that I've removed for some reason while working on the car. In the hopes that someone will find some of the information useful I've decided to post my findings here.

    Absolutely nothing on the list is conjecture or guessing; I have weighed every single part listed. Except for the few parts too heavy for my postal scale (ie a steel hood and assembled diff) all items have been weighed the same postal scale to eliminate variation between scales. The heavier items have all been weighed on the same pad of my 4-wheel scales.

    Note that if it isn't on this list I don't have the weight, so don't ask. If people want to expand this list with their own findings, all the better, though if your scales and my scales differ there will of course be conflicting information. All items, unless otherwise specified, were removed from a 95 SC. So in no particular order...

    Was the raised top the cast MP variety or a "homemade" version? I imagine the cast top would be the lighter of the two.

    Hmm, my postal scale says that the urethane isolator only weighs 8.2 ozs.

    Doh! I just realized that you're talking about the UHMW perches I made you....

    Just to add some info. I weighed the front passenger seat (leather full 6way power) and the rear seat bottom (again leather) out of my 95 SC.

    Front full leather passenger seat= 57.5 pounds
    Rear seat bottom leather= 14.5 pounds.

    The digital scale I used reads in 1/2 pound increments.

    My big fat but = 196 lbs. nekkid

    My big fat but = 205 lbs. not nekkid

    Not so much for the Tbird but when I went to the Jim Hall Kart Racing school in Ventura, CA it sure made a difference when racing against those young 14 year olds. Annoyed the crap out of me when they crowed how much better drivers they were.
