Lightweight Subaru Dash For Pdx Tunings' time attack Sti

October 07

Pdx Tuning needed to lose as much weight as possible on their time attack car. They approached us about possibly making a fiberglass replica of the dash, some headlight blanks, and some bigger canards for the bumper. Time was short so we got on it as fast as possible, and smoothed the dash out filling the airbag clock pod and all vents, then we went about building a fiberglass mold. All said and done, the new dash weighed in around three pounds, down from eleven. The headlights weighed in around ten pounds, and if I remember right we got the covers down around a pound a piece.
