Each of the two cars has gone through a lot of changes, some aimed at performance other for reliability and safety. From brakes, to suspension, engine modifications and fluids used.
In both cases the cars had the interiors completely stripped; OEM seats (front and rear) carpets, sound deadening, trim panels, radio and speakers and heating ducts all removed. The wiring looms stripped to remove unused wiring, anything that wasn’t needed for the car to function was removed to help reduce weight and improve handling and braking.
