2 Questons-Speaker Location, Elastic Straps on Convertible

Hi all, still looking at the 2012 Mustang Premium Convertible-Ingot Silver Metallic.
I have 2 more questions
Where are the 8 speakers located? I've found the 2 on each front door and 1 on each side in back. Cannot find the other 2. Nothing on the dash.

Next question is about the convertible top. The elastic straps, that pull the top into the frame when lowering, have stretched causing the corners not to pull in properly and seat. The straps are shewn into the top and then attached to the top frame. Picture attached. Any ideas on how to replace or rectify the problem?

There are 6 in the front doors and 2 in the rear. As for the top, can't know I have a coupe.

I am having the same issue. Did you ever figure out where to get these straps or how to fix? Any help would be great.

Thanks

Didn't find the straps specific to the mustang. Purchase elastic strapping, the width of the original, from a fabric store. Cut to size (keep in mind the tension you want to pull that corner in) and then sew into place. Should work well!

Exactly what I did with mine. The end of the elastic attached to the top was still good so I sewed the new piece to that one using upholstery thread. Poked a hole in the other end and screwed to frame. Worked great for over two months now.

Just noticed today that my straps are almost cut through. Looks like the hinged mechanism rubs on them as the top moves. I like your idea about the fabric store; I'll get some.
