My current car is 530kg with 7Kwh.

My project is to build another frame to reduce the wieght down to about 430Kg with the same mechanicals. This will be a single seater with no lights, blinkers etc.

If your targets are just that, targets and not an absolute must then I think you are on the right track. But if any of those are absolute must haves then I think you might be a little disappointed.

Will yours be a single seater, will it be road registered. Every little component adds weight which will bump you up over your targetted 500KG. The weight you have quoted for your batteries would be the unassembled weight. As soon as you add conductors, mounts cases you will be adding to that weight. But again as a round figure I think it is good to be a little optimistic.
