What's important is that they listen and react to their customer base. The RSD is a great addition to any S197 chassis owner looking to go on a diet while adding strength at the same time.

I'm curious: Does anyone know what makes it for "coupe only"? How much modification will it take to fit it to a convertible? Thinking of this option if I add a roll bar.

Looks great - Maybe SPP could make a Shelby lettered brushed aluminum plate to go over the recessed section that says Mustang ( or even have an autopen Carroll Shelby signature on it for us Shelby owners) I'll put in a suggestion in the parts section.

First nice cars!
Now let me take a stab at this.
Coups have the fold down seat, they have hardware bracing & mounts missing in the vert. Also the vert needs the room for the top to drop this kit might interfere with that function; don’t forget the motor, line and wires for the top.
Two options
Get the kit and modify it.
Go to an upholstery shop they can make you a nice custom rear seat delete, then go to a fabrication/weld shop and have them build a roll bar and make the brace to fit.
If you are going to add a roll bar do that first because the seat delete will need to be cut to fit around the back bar supports.

Question:
Does anyone really know when all the madness ends? When is enough is enough?
Answer: Never!

 

Car 1: 07 Shelby GT500 SuperSnake - The result of 31 years of not owning a car and living on a Harley
Car 2: 05 F-350 6.0L Just south of 800 foot lbs of torque and 500Hp at the flywheel
Car 3: 64 Comet 5.0L HO 4 speed Automatic Disc Brakes Power steering A/C 8 inch rear-end. Ground up OEM Retro-mod Custom build for my wife
Car 4: 67 Mustang GT FastBack Bone stock with 289 4Barrel front disc brakes 9 inch rear end - Restoration/ Rebuild pending completion of the Comet
Car 5: 2010 fully loaded Mustang GT Black Edition (wives car) with GT500 suspension and custom engine dress up kit flow master mufflers
Car 6: 64 Harley Davidson  Dual-Guild - Sits on a 65 swing-arm frame kick/ electric start with aluminum inner tin outer sitting on a balance and printed engine. Belt drive dual points, four spark plugs, four coils 52 tooth transmission sprocket for unlimited top end and balanced with a Andrews 1st & 3rd power gear set, 4th is for nothing other then endless wide open throttle. Yes this bike flies. The wheels have physically lifted off the ground more then once on the freeway at speeds far north of 100mph. It was clocked running not walking away from a pace car pegging it's speedo at 140mph plus.

 

The story of what this logo represents, it's history, and why this car is.
tn_gallery_10336_1488_361.jpg
In 1976 my 1969 428 SCJ Mach I engine and transmission was inadvertently taken to the junk yard on the back of an Army truck and destroyed while I was away from base on assign duty. When I returned, I to the base auto-shop to complete work on my car I was informed what had happened. Since I only had two weeks left in the service, with enlistment papers in hand I went to the Captain of the base explained the situation and asked to have my engine and transmission repairs or replaced.I was told  - "Son, this is the US Military we don't have to do anything"  after a respectful exchange of words - I respectfully informed the Captain I would not be re-enlisting, removed my signature from the my re-enlistment papers and placed them on his desk.  With less then a week left and heart broken I traded the 69 Mach I body for a Harley Davidson and never looked back.

 

After roaming the east coast for over a year I finally found my way home to the west coast where I continued to live on my Harley until that day in 2007 when I stopped at a dealership and saw my current 2007 Black on  Black Strip Delete Convertible Shelby GT500. It did not take long for that car to get under my skin and after fighting the urge as long as I could I finally gave in and brought my wife to see this car. She immediately realize that owning this car was inevitable; and started negotiated with the dealership before walking away because they would not reduce the price to what was reasonable. 

 

A few weeks later they called her and quoted her a reduced price, again she refused. A week after that they called back and agreed on a reasonable price if we would agree to buy the car right then and there over the phone, we agreed.  After a month of negotiations the dealership trailer-ed the car some 120 plus miles to our door step, papers were signed and payment was rendered, thus the beginning of what was to re-fuel a long lost passion with cars that started in 1964 with a brand new 1964 Mustang V6 manual shift.  Then grew years later to embrace the 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake; after I was my first one in 1975 while in the Military. 
 
So if you ever see this car in person and wonder why anyone would go to the effort and expense of modifying a car to the extent this car is modified; the answer is simple. 
After thirty-one years of living on my Harley, Mr. Carroll Shelby was back in the game and designed a car that sparked a long dead and buried passion that had been festering for thirty-one long years, where by I had Zero interest in cars and no desire to even own one. Since I had  a whole lot of catching up to do, and I wasn't a spring chicken anymore; I went at it with the full unbridled busting loose passion and desire that can only come from being bottled up for thirty-one years. 
 
In 2008 I meant Mr. Shelby in person for the first time in Terlingua Texas. I told him my story, shook his hand, thanked him for getting back into the game and designing the Shelby GT500 that rekindled my passion for cars. 
God bless Mr. Carroll Shelby - January 11, 1923 - May 10, 2012 He may be gone, but not forgotten.

Switch to Firefox much better and no more bugs crashes or slow downs since I shut down ie. Down side there is a learning curve that takes about two weeks to learn. And there is a ton of free add on's that only make it better and safer. :backtotopic:
