            I was hoping these would be Metal not Plastic. Very disappointed with the product. And no new screws either!

            No way josé

            The markings for the screw were off. Once I kinda got the actual “part” secured and shut the convertible top it cracked. Oh well, win some lose some.

            For $20 you pay for these you would expect better quality. They don’t come pre-drilled and the first time I latched the top it blew out the plastic. Not happy with his product at all.

            Latch and catch

            The holes where they tell you to drill is not the same as where the factory holes are. So I ruined them and had I order new ones.

            Horrible quality

            Cheap plastic, doesn't come with mounting holes pre drilled, has a spot marked where they should go but it's in the wrong place. Broke first time latching them.

            "The Latch"

            The latch was shipped right on time. Had to drill the screw hole being careful to get the exact location. A few minutes later; wow, a perfect fit. American Muscle very professional.

            Cheap plastic

            Not the same material as original. Very cheap plastic. Put it on and first time I snapped roof down it cracked the lip that holds it down off. Everything else I've purchased from AM has been great, with this one exception

            Not for 88.

            Installed these at the shop on my 1988. As soon as I closed the tried to close the top, driver side latch catch shattered and the left guide pin holder wouldn't let me pull the top down far enough to latch it.

            Good replacement

            This was a good replacement for the old broken ones. I just wish they came with the small screws needed to secure them in place.

            Convertible latch catch and alignment pin guide kit

            I installed the latch catch on both sides, and the drivers side broke the very first time I secured it! Snapped and a chunk went flying. So, I would not recommend these parts. But, I think this is a very poor design. The steel hook should connect to a steel catch. Have had many convertibles and they had solid connections. Bought many parts from you guys and this is the first time I have had a problem. Regards, Kurt P.S. These parts went on one of the neatest 1989 GT convertibles you will ever see. Clean and sano mods.

            convertible top latch rubber and guide kit

            Item works well once holes were drilled for retaining screws. I'm not sure why they are not drilled from the factory. There is a mark where the hole should be but no hole.

            I made it work.

            As described by an earlier post you have to drill holes for the screw for the installation. I did so but was reluctant to do a countersink for the tapered screw that holds it on as this material is pretty thin. The original did have a tapered countersink hole and was no thicker than the replacement part. I used the tapered screws that were on the car, but I may change the screws to a flat head type later. The part for the J hook latch does have an area that shows where to drill. I did not use the guide pin part as mine were still o.k.

            Creaky Vert Top

            I bought this product to quiet the top on my '90 stang. Works great, no more leaks when driving and all noises gone. Thought on installation: be patient and ensure tight, flush fitment with car mounting cavity.

            Latch catch kit

            It was a correct fit, but the plastic needs to be thicker. I installed mine and one side broke the first time I closed the top.

            • Response from AmericanMuscle

              The kit is made from the same OEM plastic specs so it shouldn't have broken after installing. We can certainly get a replacement shipped right out for you.
