Convertible or what would you call it?

Okay, what would you call when you have a removable top but not a full convertible top, kinda like on the supra, del sol, etc. Basically a t-tops without the middle bar?

What do you think it would cost to do this? or even a t-tops conversion on a 01 stang? Thank you in advance.

That is a Targa Top. Vettes have them also. I belive that www.mustangtuning.com is selling the conversion from JMS for around $2k+.

You can't order from them, they don't retail their products.

Yes, that is an absolute essential. I'd then reenforce between the subframes too. Basically do a brand new subframe system on the car.

How in-depth would it be to do a new subfame, basically? I apologize for my ignorance.

Invest in a entire roll cage to reall strengthen it. Or at least a street cage.

I've thought about trying to do this on mine, even before these kits were out. Just dunno bout it all. I think it'd look pretty sweet if you did it all right.

No, you're supposed to be able to do it with a few basic tools and a day or so to do it in.

I wouldn't. You take all the value of the car away forever when you do that. Even when you put in a sunroof you ruin the car.

I'm thinking about doing it..but after I do everything else to my car. It'll be something to do when I run out of stuff.

The paint job that first car has made me vomit

I always liked the T-top look on a 99+. I'm a little sketchy about pre99 though....
