Started seriously looking into getting my Rabbit GTI into a great autoX car.
The mods started last week when I found out my interior carpet was shot. I was excited when I thought I lost "some weight" After looking at it more in depth, I've decied to go all out with it.
I purchased some dupli-color truck bedliner and covered my floor boards with it to protect against rust. removed almost every interior panel except door cards ( for now) , sound insulation and removed bumpers,
It started out weighing 1980lbs. I weighed at the DOT station. After removing everything I could inside and the bumpers, the Rabbit has lost at least 200lbs.
I weighed it on the same scale. Plans include New tires for autoXing only, lightweight batt. remove brake booster, small roll-cage, removing some more sound insulation from the spare tire well.
With a special thanks to Scott (sandman126) for getting me the new recaros out of a MKII GTI
P4C (sorry, car is dirty from all the rain)
Out with the old blue seats...in with the new (used)
