Meh.

PS. That's the sound an indifferent Canadian makes.

Re: convertible hardtop mustang?

I would love to have that if it didn't take 5 minutes to open and close. Looks a lot better than stock without a sportster cover.

Re: convertible hardtop mustang?

i just think on the 05+ model like that, it looks like an f150's hard top over the bed.

i'd much rather a t-top

*Blonde moment question* is a t-top a targa-top (maybe thats where the "t" comes from?)

Re: convertible hardtop mustang?

No....search T tops...you will see pics...not Targa tops...targas on mustang look like ***...

Where you get F150 toneau cover from...I have no idea...looks no different than any sportster style toneau cover really...F150 has nothing to do with the video.

Targa = ricer gheyness.

Toneau is a cover...what covers the bed of a pickup...or the back seat of a mustang...

Re: convertible hardtop mustang?

i don't think it looks bad at all. maybe speed up the open/close, but other than that, it's pretty sweet...

Re: convertible hardtop mustang?

thats pimp, all they need to do to speed it up is to actually use the right actuator cause its quite obvious they are not using the right weight actuator, give ita few months and that top aint gonna be working anymore cause of that watch

Targa Top is where the whole top section is removeable, like the Targa Top supras. T-Tops is where there is the two sides that are removed, but there is still the center bracing.

btw i like the idea of a hardtop convertible, but something just scares me about it being a ford and all. that ****s gonna work for all of two years, and imagine how ****ing expensive it would be to replace any of it.

Re: convertible hardtop mustang?

you have to lose your back seat... but its not like I use it for anything anyways and no one can really sit back there. Maybe they will make a good quality one for 94 up mustangs sometime soon (that is also good quality.

Re: convertible hardtop mustang?

what was the first year of convertible hardtops that worked like the mustang does? If it was back around 95... every ford made today is higher quality than anything built back in 1995 so if they did make one im sure it would work fine.
