Yupp, look for raggtop products. Just remember, unless your car is an 03/04 cobra, you have a vinyl top, not cloth.

Re: convertible top

it is rather expensive to order (40 bucks for the cleaner and conditioner) but worth it as it doesnt take much to clean it~ it lasts a long time.

Thanks for the compliments herb

Re: convertible top

Regarding the "cloth" top, what is recommended for care with these? I'm looking at an '07 GT with the cloth top and like the look of it, just curious how it is for caring it for it.

Does the cloth top seem to show more wear than the stock top if kept in the retracted (down) position all summer?

I've wondered about the wear on a top that is kept down for extended periods of time. Mine's stayed down a maximum of a few days but the 90 was stored for quite a while with the top down, it's vinyl however.

Re: convertible top

On my previous Mustang with the vinyl-type 'vert top, it would be put down in the spring and usually would never get put back up until 5-6 months later for winter storage as the car was strictly a sunny day ride.

That top looked as new when I sold the car recently.

Just curious if those with the cloth tops have noticed them to show signs of wear more soon than what you would with the standard top.

I'm a believer in using the top boot to keep the dust/dirt from getting in by the top while in the retracted position.

Re: convertible top

05+ gt's dont have cloth tops from the factory, the GT500 I think does though.

My top is cloth and there are a couple wear marks on it~ but ive seen the same marks on a 1200 mile car so~.... overall its in great shape.

I cant use my convertible boot cover as its a POS and fits horribly.

Re: convertible top

I thought you fixed that with your cool velcro write up? Or didn't it hold up to time?

I haven't had the time to try and correct mine, it's pretty bad. I'm trying to find a one piece solid boot cover but can't seem to find anything. I might just break down and buy a speedster cover.

The cloth top is an option on the newer ('05-up) Mustangs for $230.
