Once you get a convertible quicker than 13.49 in the quarter mile a 6 point is required. I had one custom fabricated since I couldn't find what I needed and wanted.
We finally had a day where I could get some pictures of the changes that Bobby (Custom Fabrication - new website coming www.customfabrication.com) did to the harness bar last weekend. He took the straight bar out and put a bent one in. I can now recline the seat back and get it set up at a comfortable position.
I also added something today since I had a little time. Had to make it stand out just a little more when the top is down.
And -- added the stripe to the bar

The stripe really finishes it off perfectly. I also like the white piping on the door panels that picks up the theme. Looks like a clean fabrication, and Bobby did a nice job matching the color to the interior. Having a convertible myself, I just have to say one thing: either you aren't married, your wife doesn't ever ride with you, or your wife is wired a lot different than mine is. For my wife, even putting the top down is a big adventure.
2008 V6 auto convertible. Go: GT duals/custom H pipe, front and rear GT sways/poly bushings, Brenspeed tune and CAI. Show: Blackout panel, painted mirror caps, 17" Bullitt rims and Pirelli Pzeros, GT front bumper.
Thanks - I couldn't decide on the stripe then decided it was only vinyl and if I didn't like it could take it off easily. Looks like this winter will be time to pull the cage out and paint the stripe. I like how it turned out and no one will ask again if something happened to the top since the "mechanism is still up".
My wife does ride in the car sometimes, but prefers her car when we go places. She thinks that my car rides too rough with all the suspension changes.
The door bars are removable, plus they swing out when they are installed - you can see the pin at the top of the door bar to release it. But I pull them out unless I'm headed to the track (or in this case, getting some pictures for Bobby). She actually rode in the car the other day and the passenger side door bar was in. I just had to help her get in and out.
so a stock shelby convertible needs a roll cage otherwise it cant run at the track?
EDIT - Not even, just a stock gt would
Last I heard NHRA rules were any open top vehicle that runs 13.5 or quicker needs a roll bar and any open top vehicle quicker then 12.5 need a full cage! Gainesville will run you off without a roll bar @ 13.00
