Forgive me for not showing a hardcore speed mod, but getting rid of the rear seat suits my needs to have a more practical vehicle.

I removed about 37 lbs of weight then added about 10 lbs reinforcing Baltic Birch Plywood and aluminum.
I also added a 6061 T6 0,050" thk bulkhead secured over the rear seat pass thru. This adds stiffness to the chassis, a firewall and sound deadening.

I added about 8-10 LBS of sound deadener, and about the same in tools, clothes, and supplies under the seat ( er, I mean storage shelf, car is a 2 seater now!) so I expect the car is only 10 lbs lighter.

The rear shelf will hold 240 lbs of puppies, many cases of beer, or me. A nice flat 19" x 50' area.

(Just waiting in the barn for April 1!)
