Erik: The whiteline brace was designed to work with the factory radiator support, so it should bolt right in. I am currently working on a small project that might allow me to install the whiteline brace and keep the Steeda support.

Thanks golkhl, I was planning on getting the radiator support as well, but I will keep abreast of your project to see what happens, Erik

Does anyone know if there is an issue using this brace on a convertible?

I talk to Whiteline. I like brace. I want brace. I buy brace soon. I go faster around turns. I smile larger. Erik

Got the brace installed with the Steeda radiator support. Made some 1/8" spacers out of aluminum plate, they install between sway bar mounts and the whiteline bracket. Also had to slot the mounting holes in the k-member. Now that I have it installed, I will put some miles on the car, and report back with my thoughts on the brace.
