Still needs a some finishing touches.

But all in all not too bad.

 

As of now it is only designed for a convertible without a light bar.

I have the template used to cut out the light bar, and will send it to Smoothline so the can pre cut for the SS style light bar.

Other changes may be that they will no longer offer finished (painted) tops, you will need to have it painted yourself.

This is due to shipping damage to the paint. Also if you have the top painted, the top will be with the car so the painter can color match the top to the car much better.

 

Will need to drill two holes in your car when installing the top.

The holes need to be drilled in the front where the top locks into place on each side of the car. It is not hard to do but once the whole are drilled you may need to oblong them a bit to get a perfect alinement.

The hole do not hurt anything and you can not see them.

The finial cost depends on what options you order.I ordered the electric ceiling hoist so that added a few extra bucks but its turns the install and removal into a one person task, and keeps the top safe when not on the car.

Rag Top - Convertible - Hard Top

 

 

 

Jim, that is sweet.

Here is the link on my black SS vert.

http://www.teamshelb...-vert-upgrades/

I think I am pushing somewhere between 650 - 675 RWHP.

I need to get her on a Dyno.

This is my set up and the upgrades I did to the Super Snake in addition to the upgrades completed @ SAI.

Current SS setup:

1. FRPP 2.3L TVS M-6066-SGT

2. SVT FRPP 113 MM COLD AIR KIT -M-9603-SVT07

3. SVT FRPP HANDLING PACK - M-2007-FR3SVT

with the following added SHELBY SS performance options: installed @ SAI.

1. UPGRADED - Shelby Shifter

2. UPGRADED - SHELBY complete cooling package.

3. UPGRADED - DYNOTECH one-piece aluminum drive shaft.

4. "KR" rear axle reservoir.

More upgrades: = approx 650+ RWHP - Complements of Alex, aka vapor08GT500

1. NGK plugs.

2. Port match SC & plenum.

3. Throttle body – new FRPP Twin bore 65mm polished - M-9926-CJ65

4. Billet fuel rails - FORE Precision Works – black anodized.

5. Justin's VMP *Big TB* High-Flow Inlet Elbow for TVS Blower.

6. Justin's VMP 2.65 pulley tune upgrade kit - TVSUPGPAK.

7. Exhaust – Dynatech headers - JetHot extreme coating. with high flow cats.

8. reischeperformance – 170* thermostat

I believe my boost PSI numbers are lower due to the Dynatech exhaust headers and the airflow efficiency.

awesome, always wished Mustang/Shelby vert had a removeable hard top

 

 

 

It did in 1995. 499 were built, SVT Cobra only, and only in Black.

 

Number 14 and 167 are side-by-side, 14 has the hardtop in place, 167 has the soft top up.

This is #14 during a photoshoot..............

This is both in the SVTOA calender............

With the hardtop on, these cars look like coupes. The designed was so nice that the removable hardtop looked perfect on the car. The hardtop also included full headliner and dome light as well as a defrost rear glass. These cars too had two unique attachment point at the top of each a-pillar.

 

The coolest thing was to drive through a car show with all four windows down. The SN-95 guys would flock around the car wondering how you got the rear windows to go down on a coupe?!?!?!?

Learned a new thing today. Another thing i wish Ford would make an attempt, would be a Retracable Hard top for the Mustang, but probably be very hard to accomplish

I'm getting a hard-top looking at the photos. :lol2:

 

Thanks for posting this Jim!

 

:hysterical:

very cool, looks really good from what I can see

 

 

It is at the dealer having the paint damage repaired,

 

When I get it back, I will fit/ properly secure it to the car.

 

I am waiting for them to finish the instructions so they can send me a copy. I have not had time to work on it.

 

I need to see how they wanted the back end secured, for some reason I do not think I am doing it correctly.

After that, it gets its stripes.
