Any suggestions on where to start?
Usually making it more rugged adds weight...
Commercialized look? Where do you see "baby fat" ?
It appears you're expecting strangers to pilfer gas, tires and other important things under the hood. Sure you would feel comfortable removing "baby fat" like doors, top and other non essentials?
Other than the spare tire, the huge exhaust canister, rear seat and the other things mentioned the "new girl" has no other fat.
