Re: 90 Daytona on a diet

I don't think Gary had one on here. There's a running list of what he did to the car on DDG though.

Re: 90 Daytona on a diet

took a few more pounds off this afternoon, cleaned out the inside real nice in preparation for the p/s floor board repair.

8 feet of exhaust pipe...............14lbs.
both heated power mirrors..........4lbs.
4 feet of heater hose and valve....2lbs.

for an even 20 lbs. cut the exhaust right before the cat and now she really does sound like a race car now, neighbors should enjoy that. also pulled the heater vacuum actuated valve out along with 4 feet of heater hose. also pulled both mirrors off, actually the d/s mirror was about to fall off but the p/s mirror was actually in good shape. for a new total weight loss of 590.5 lbs. closing in on the 600 lb. mark, leaving the car weighing 2372 lbs.

Re: 90 Daytona on a diet

With the dismissal of the front sway bar and hardware, the car has dropped another 21 lbs. setting the total to date weight reduction to 611.5 pounds and in theory leaving the car weighing in at 2351 lbs. there will be some weight added back to the car like the intercooler, piping and floor board repairs but there's also still quite a few other places that are going to lose weight.

Re: 90 Daytona on a diet

So you're going for a pure drag car then? No roundy-round or course racing?

Re: 90 Daytona on a diet

yep, strictly a drag car that will towed to the track and towed back when it breaks. never been excited much about road courses. grew up in a circle track racing family, but always had more fun drag racing than anything else.

Re: 90 Daytona on a diet

Hoping to get the cell built this coming week, already got the fill cap and a 300 lph. Bosch inline fuel pump, so once I get that all going I'll be dropping and weighing original fuel tank. Any guesses on weight of an empty fuel tank?

Re: 90 Daytona on a diet

My L body felt like between 17 and 21 pounds without the sending unit. No clue on the G body.

I love this picture. Especially since we've met.


Sign of a true Dad with young ones. Making a fuel tank template out of a Pampers box.... Wow does that bring back memories...

Re: 90 Daytona on a diet

That's right, luckily my youngest just finished potty training so from now on I'll have to source my templates from some other type of cardboard besides diaper boxes, lol.
