Removing Parts From My Car

I'm looking for input mainly.

I'm considering pulling my A/C and swapping out power steering for manual steering.

Multiple reasons. 1. +mpg (Less belt usage, and at least 65 lbs less weight). 2. Learning experience. 3. Why not? 4. Free after selling stripped parts off.

I can't think of any cons besides getting dirty and making a mess trying to do this stuff.

As far as the argument for ruining car resale value. I only paid 1600 cash for this car with a rebuilt title.

Anyone have a link to a decent guide for A/C removal? I'm pretty sure I need to get it drained first...

Tips, suggestions, whatever is appreciated!
