Dry cell battery, race seats, and remove all the rear seat belt hardware. This and the all the things you already mentioned should be worth over 100lbs. You could also do a carbon fiber hood, but it's probably only worth 15lbs.

Go on a diet, fat ass. LOL, just kidding. I ripped out my factory seats and putting light weight ones in. Axed the rear seatbelt hardware (Steve wasn't kidding, that stuff was heavy). Then get rid of spare tire and some other stuff.

You can also save a good 35-40 lbs by getting rid of your cats - those fockers are heavy!!!!

Just some numbers to think about. I weighed the leahter back seat in my '94 Supra and it was about 26 lbs total (top and bottom) , passenger seat was 39 lbs and power driver seat was 49 lbs. I didn't know the rear belt hardware was heavy. Lose the spare and jack. Throw in some light weight seats. Like Steve said when you add it up you can probably trim 100lbs off without losing too much daily driver capability. Of course the back seat would be pretty useless and if you blew a tire out you would be SOL.
