T top structure.

T top conversions were not very well engineered, I have a 5.0 HO T top Capri RS. It had been driven hard, and crashed. The doors did not fit very well, I found the typical mustang cracks under the drivers seat, rocker panel , under the rear seat, upper quarter panel near the door. I got It up and straightened everything I could then installed a heavy duty sub frame ladder kit, and added more bracing in the front radiator support and under the rear seat. More tie plates, welds and 1/4 barn tin drill point screws in hard to weld areas. It is now solid and the rear tires hook up a lot better. I have a friend who does backyard body work. He put one crash on my heavy equipment trailer, blocked up the body, doubled up the winch cable with a snatch block, chained it down and pulled it back. A couple times we used the backhoe to be able to pull the direction we needed.
