Exclamation Look what I found under the hood

I opened the hood to install my billet grille and look what I found, a strut brace! This was one of the mods I was looking at doing. Does anyone know if these are standard on conertables or does it come with the Pony package? Well on to the next mod.

PS. I hope I attached the picture correctly

They are standard on the convertibles they are needed for support due to the lack of a hardtop

How long have you had the car? Never been under the hood? I think that's the first thing I do when I go to buy a car, lol.
Yeah, saved you a mod right there, very nice!

Re: Look what I found under the hood

Ya I usually pop the hood right away; I already looked at several coupe V6's and GT's, but I guess never under the hood of a vert. Weather has been crappy so I haven't had time to look . I ordered it Jan 7th and just picked it up last Tuesday afternoon. Still tying to figure everything out with the message centure and the nav.

they are not standard on all mustang convertibles, mine didnt have one. I am not sure on the 05 or 09+ but I doubt they are standard either. Its part of the performance package perhaps~ or as you said pony package. They dont really help THAT much.

They are standard on all new convertibles, both V-6 and the GT...
