Project: Bratwurst - Adding Lightness

It might seem a bit strange starting the modifications before fixing the faults with the car but as the main modification is stripping as much out of the car as possible in the quest to reduce it's weight, it makes sense to do this first. A lot of the cars faults may well then disappear as the faulty items are deemed surplus to requirements and removed. It'll also improve access to the parts that do need attention.
The plan is to remove anything that is not needed to make the car function, retain it's structural inegrity or to keep it within the requirements to make it road legal. Anything that cannot be removed will hopefully be either modified or replaced with a lighter alternative.

Sadly I was unable to get the vehicle re-weighed following its weight loss plan so I do not know what the new power to weight ratio is. But it is now a lot more nose heavy than before as there was a lot less that I could actually remove from the front of the car and still keep it driveable.
The rear suspension now doesn't compress at all. All movement is taken up by the shock absorbers upper mounting bushes.
It's also a lot noisier inside it now.
