St185 Fiberglass hatch weight

Postby Tecker185 » Fri Mar 04, 2016 8:33 pm

So my st185 is going on a diet, with a goal of 2500#. So in order to get there i need to get a bit extreme. So I got my hands on a fiberglass hatch. There is nothing out there on this subject. I guess ill just let the pictures to the talking.

You need a board or something in the scale that you zero and then weigh the items without them leaning on something for a more accurate reading.
Are the fg hatches still around?

Does it have the holes in the interior for trim and wiring?

Here's a factory non 3 piece spoiler hatch hung on my industrial hanging scale. Completely factory missing nothing but the large plastic piece by the latch. Backs up teckers scale.

You're trying to strip 700lbs from the car? Has anyone done anything close to that before?

Im shooting for 2500# and the appearance of a full interior. Alot of custom parts are being made. 2grfe, BorgWarner efr, aem infinity 6, aluminum exhaust, carbon fiber drive shaft, non sunroof skin, ect

The car isnt going to have anything under the dash but a small custom heater core and blower.

It should be doable. My rc converted 93 with interior doors forward weighs 2940 according to corner balance machine and I just lost another 140 lbs without any carbon fiber or fiberglass bits. It looks like my v6 and steering conversion may loose another 40+ depending on final configuration. Probably cant get there without lightweight body panels for sure but 2700 lbs should be doable with factory body panels. Tecker and I have similar weight goals just going about them a little differently.
