As above. Is this a worthwhile undertaking to reduce weight and any idea how long it would take a competent mechanic to then refit carpets etc?

You might want to check out this thread ELA has done some inspiring things to take weight out of his car

I don't know how long it would take but I did see a hint on car sos in which they used dry ice to crack the sound deadening of the body otherwise you will be there for an age scraping. Not sure easy dry ice is to get hold of though.

I doubt you are going save much more weight than a good poo Very Happy

There is not a lot of sound deadening material that is easily accessible on on a 997, Porsche only use small pieces of deadening on panels as that is really all that is needed to actually 'deaden' the panel, for example the outer skin of the doors have a piece that is only about 6" or so square which is sufficient to attenuate any vibration/ringing. There is much more weight to be saved by removing the sound absorbing material, but this is mostly an integral part of the moulded carpets.
