    So I spent a couple weeks disassembling a 96 GSX. I weighed all the components and made a spreadsheet. The vehicle was missing a few things, so I currently have estimates for these weights. This is my 2000lb scale that I used for the weights. It measures to the 0.1lb.

    I will try and attach a spreadsheet with the numbers. It is currently 209 entries long. Please help with these 12 items.
    Fog light assemblies,
    Front wiring harness including engine bay fusible box back to the under dash fusible box (complete and uncut),
    left or right fender,
    radiator fan (for AC),
    Stock intercooler,
    stock intercooler plumbing,
    Emissions control canister & bracket,
    ABS Manifold (left front corner of engine bay,
    Cruise control assembly,
    Sunroof glass, and
    Control Harness.

    For clarity, all weights are without hardware where sensible.

    See attached spreadsheet.

    I had to get it into small enough pieces to weigh.;)

    For reference the tan boxes are estimates. These will be updated as weights are received.

    Thanks for the weights!

    I bet you could find a buyer if you cut the top panels off the front strut towers where they typically rust out.

    Answered all of my questions. What a guy! Thanks!
    Does this make anyone else sad to see though?
