FRPP revised the models years to 2005-2013 for the LS Rear Seat Delete and added a grey version. $935 at Tousley Ford.

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.

Check and see if IE has the compatibility setting in the Tools menu. That may solve your problem

The X brace won't work with convertible S197's. It was brought up when I did my writeup on it...

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:

Wait what? Isn't it cut into the piece? The mustang part.

Edit: i just looked at Tobs thread it definitely is cut out of the brace there is no decal.
