    20180808_121015.jpg Color match options also; these are pictures of a set powder coated to match an 07 convertible. you can see the contrast between the royal or vista blue and standard wrinkle black finish. Color match option $30 extra. Gateway Powder Coating works closely with my customers to ensure a blue from Missouri is the same blue expected for custom rides in New Jersey.

    This is a set prepared for shipping. Bolt sets are shipped in uprights for each side. 10 OEM bolts and 2 grade 8, metric 1.50 thread pitch complete a set of 12 bolts needed to replace all hardware. UPS time is usually 3 days, Toronto Canada 4 days in transit. Have sent several north of the border. 20180723_150413.jpg 20180723_145110.jpg

    Ford is cutting back on their inventory, they have made obsolete another bolt necessary for a complete hardware swap. First it was the long bolt that goes through the collar in the middle of the brace. Next 20180803_215200.jpg 20180717_205150.jpg the main brace to frame bolts at each end of the brace are being phased out. Now the good news, these bolts are available at any top line auto parts store. I use NAPA here in town. All the hardware from Ford is an 8.8 grade 1.50 metric thread. Blue Loctite on threads make these bolts stay in place but not back off.

    This is a comparison between replacement braces & a rotten brace from an '08 convertible with low mileage. A picture tells the whole story. The OEM brace is made with square stock, the whole bottom of brace has rusted away. Old and New.jpg

    These are some photos sent by happy Mustang convertible owners that have replaced their braces from around the nation. Have gained shipping experience with UPS international to our Canadian neighbors. I can now confidently offer my braces to anywhere in Canada for an extra $50 bringing the total for a set of braces to $500 to your door. These braces have been well received, testimonials provided or compare the before & after photos sent back by satisfied customers. As always you can reach me at [email protected], thank you for your interest!
