I installed the same top on my Mustang a couple months ago, and I didn't find the job to be too bad, just time-consuming as others have said. It didn't help that I got sick halfway through the process and couldn't work on it for about a week. Well worth the money saved over paying someone else to do it for me, though. I followed the video from CJ Pony Parts and while it left out a few steps, it was pretty good overall.

I will say, a cordless drill and a u-joint was a lifesaver for the nuts in the window well. I went out and bought an air stapler for $25 at Harbor Freight and it was well worth it for attaching the new top. I went with the same one piece top you did since it's always in the garage and pretty much only driven on weekends; if I need to replace it again down the line, they will always make parts for these things.

Now replacing the catalytic converters, that's a job I will never do again. In fact, I gave up and took it to a shop after 3 days of messing with it when it still leaked and I was so sore I couldn't move my arms above my head.[Linked Image]

summer car, doesn't see inclement weather at all. 8 year warranty on clarity and hazing. Plus the OEM top is a two piece and a royal PITA to install.

here it is after a wash with the old top. 2nd pic is how it is now. I added the Mach1 lip spoiler and plasti-dipped the rear spoiler black.

I need to get myself one of those lip spoilers. They belong on all of these cars, not just the Mach 1's.
