getting ready for paint and i have just one more concern, should i gut the roof??? car will be ran in a 3300 lb min class. allready have it gutted to the max, however i know you want some weight up high to help aid in rolling over. and rules state you cant have any weight higher than drivers shoulder (i believe thats what it is. so what do you all think? i personally wasnt going to but your all the experts.

take it out, then you can add weight where you need it later (if you have to add weight to make minimum weight)

take it out if nothing more so that if you ever roll it over it is easier to straighten the roof back out.

Gut it. Put those pounds further back, besides it will be easier to straighten out when it gets bent.

Yes Dee make the car as light as possible then put the weight back into it and keep the weight as low as you can. Eddie
