Looking good! Keep us posted!!
I've edited the original post to include more build-related information. I'll use this post to keep a running tab of all parts installed on the car.
I'd like to use this original post to keep a running list of all parts involved in this build so we can start documenting options for CSR projects. Hopefully this also serves as a blueprint for the CSR #3 build.

The following pictures show various stages of the weight removal. The interior is completely stripped and all the unnecessary weight is being taken out. The rollcage build should start very soon. The doors will be cut and the windshield will be tabbed to avoid cracking.
Big thank you to KW for setting up the custom-valved double adjustable race shocks. Tarett drop-links will be attached from the shocks to their GT3 front swaybar.
Will weigh the car after the cage goes in. Should be very close to CSR weight w/driver.
Let the good times roll!

Think you will make Laguna Seca in August?
Makes me a little queezy to see it gutted like that. Would love to be able to do that to a dedicated track car some day.
Thanks guys. Will get some more updates this week on the build. Plan is to make it to Laguna Seca for August 20-22.
Some more pictures of the weight-reduction.
Rear bumper supports removed. That exhaust needs to go asap!
Wiring is complete. RSR removed a ton of wirings that just weren't needed anymore. You will notice that the fusebox has been relocated to the passenger side. This entire effort was a lot of work but I'm happy with the end result. It will be organized once the rollcage is built/painted.
Wing risers being measured by Mike @ Kognition. They're working on a wing that can fit all Cayman racecars.
After a lot of deliberation, we decided to bolt the wing risers directly to the chassis. Why not?! Ahh, I can't wait to see the end product.
The doors have been cut, the TechArt wing removed and now it's going in for the rollcage. CSR3 will be ready for Laguna!!
OK, while the rollcage is being built, we're going Cup car style with the dash. The tan is being peeled, the foam removed and we're going to clean it up to look like the raw composite material. This should save a good amount of weight as well.
Rolling into the fab shop for the cage.

Is that the TechArt "Sound Box" exhaust tip? What are you doing with the removed parts? Selling?
Yes, I'm selling certain parts. PM if you are interested in anything specific.
Why isn't CSR in the PCA Club Racing line up? So little additional work for me to do from where I currently am. Is it on the charts out west?
The dash, sans leather and foam.
[QUOTE=Cayman_Sense;477014]The dash, sans leather and foam.
