Those are nice seats.

I was just wondering about air bag sensors etc.

When I put Recaros in my Taurus I had an air bag light come on.

I used 2.2ohm resistors in the plugs for the airbags in the dash, but i didn't have airbags in my seats. A 2.2oh resistor will also work for your factory seat belts if you wanted to remove them for race harnesses. i just soldered some short pieces of wire to the ends of the resistor and tinned the ends of the wire so i could push them into the plugs easier. They of course sell resistor plugs like this on amazon for this exact purpose.

Gas tank deflectors and hardware 4lbs 11oz.

I removed mine today 'cause I discovered the rubber had completely disintegrated. The remaining hardware weighed a hair under 3lb. I ordered new replacements from Tasca Parts and these appear to be plastic so they'll hardly weigh anything.

The gas tank front shield for the right side carries part no. 8R3Z-9B007-C, and the corresponding part for the left side carries part no. BR3Z-9B007-B.

I removed those shields when I installed my subframe connectors.

The rubber was brittle and falling apart.

Passenger airbag with all metallic hardware = 6.8lb.

I removed mine and clipped only the black plastic blanking panel that says "airbag' back into the dash. Two 2.2ohm.resistors plugged into the four-pin wiring connector took care of the airbag light.

That's what i did with the passenger side airbag. So easy to remove and put back just the panel
