Mustang Targe Top

I found a targa top *drop top* for the mustang. It is 1700 dollars, for the kit, about how much woul dit cost to get it installed and where/what would be a reputable body shop in the baton rouge area.

This is a pretty badass system, and respond if you want to see pictures of it. Im really anxious about getting it but not sure how it would seat on the car.

Re: Mustang Targe Top

Some people that have had them for a while have problems with body integrity because an uninterupted rooflline is more integral to body stability than most people realize (I.E. after a period of time, the gaps change and the intial seal becomes totally changed and you get weird body sway and leaks). I imagine it would cost around $1,000 for something like that. IDK though.

Re: Mustang Targe Top

you would need to tighten up the frame with full length sub frames (welded in) and a few other little boosts before you should do this. In the end it will look goofy and ruin the car... buy a convertable or leave it as is.

Re: Mustang Targe Top

Hmm...after looking at pics, I am not so sure on this. Might be because it is such a new concept to me...but I am just not sure....

Re: Mustang Targe Top

Re: Mustang Targe Top

I've honestly heard nothing but problems from people who have had them for over 3 months.

Re: Mustang Targe Top

Damn...I must be waaaay out of the loop. Everyone in here has heard nothing but bad things about these...and I have never heard of the concept until he called me this morning to ask me about a shop around here. Guess it is time for me to get out a little or something.

Re: Mustang Targe Top

the top thing that goes on the room looks bad and sticks out pretty heavy... yet another reason to no get it.

Re: Mustang Targe Top

Yeh...I've looked at them before..the only way I'd do one of those is if I put a full roll cage system in it for integrity purposes. I have a friend who had a sunroof installed in his 01 before he bought it, and you can feel the body flex with just a sunroof installed.
