where are you losing all the weight at?

I weigh 180
Lots of stuff has been duplicated in alum in the front the car. Cut all the bolts down light wheels brakes tube everything in the suspension.
I still have the bumpers in the car. They are alum also.
Watch the ounces and the pounds will fall. I would like to make some things in carbon just don't have the time to do it.
