Weight Loss- headlite actuator removal

If you have a serious street/strip car, you might be willing to trade a little inconvience for a little more speed.

Here's something I made several years ago to help get the ShopMule down to 2325lbs, while keeping it street legal...a couple of simple headlite support struts. The purpose of these struts is to hold the headlites in the upright position for night time driving, after the actuator motors and linkage have been removed. Easily stashed in the glovebox, they install in less than a minute when needed, no tools required. We made these out of 1/4 x 1" aluminum...

Here's a link to a page with more about the rest of the car...http://grannys.tripod.com/20102.html
