    As for bumper brackets, I took the stock ones and we drilled large holes in them and milled slots to lighten. Have them weighing next to nothing, faster and cheaper.

    As for pulleys, made aluminum ones and made smaller for crank and large for alternator. Slowed it down = less hp robbed and lighter too.

    Something simple on my street car, I'm sure you guys have already done, an aluminum radiator, it felt like less than half the weight of my brass one.

    I just added up all my weight savings, I am 250-260 lbs light and almost all in front with the farthest things back being lighter seats.
    Is there any reason to maybe get lighter front springs? I wonder especially because of jarring bumps and fiberglass fenders/hood.
