I started on the passenger side, removing as much plastic as feasible. I am trying to keep the interior somewhat livable, but lighter and simplified. After removing some plastic, I discovered there was a lot of unnecessary metal connected to the dash beam.
I relocated the ground (with stainless hardware) and cut a off a reasonable amount.
Here's what I removed from the passenger side.
And here's what it looked like afterward. Sorry about the poor lighting. This picture is from a low angle. From normal eye level, it looks really clean.
The driver side was a bit more complicated. I had some switch gear to work with, and a lot more wires to avoid.
