I decided to cut a little weight out of my rear bumper. I wasn't sure what to do but since I had two rear bumpers laying around I figured if I screwed up I could just put the stock stuff back on.


Here's what the car looked like before I started cutting:

After the black inner bumper is removed you can see the two tow hook horns (the pax side has been cut off here - this looks easy but I bet it took me 2 hours for each side):

And after:



What it looks like when everything is put back on the car. I'm not sure how safe it is but it is a bit lighter:



Here is 10 lbs of junk that was removed:
