Talking Stripping car before sale

Just a bit of fun really, ordering a new motor soon, so I'm 'keeping her running' till it arrives in about 6 months time. I have a 59 horse 1.2 8v, with 840kg on board, thats 14.24 kg/hp. I have no major interest in selling the car for any real value, so I'm looking to strip as much weight as possible without invalidating the insurance, i.e. to see if I can keep up to my mates golf . I don't want to spend any money on the car as I'm getting shot of it soon.


Any insurance friendly ideas such as radio removing (only 1.2 kg with speakers) will be appreciated

Many thanks, Callum

Re: Stripping car before sale

Can you remove the rear seats without notifying insurance company?
