    I ride with my seat all the way back, and I mean the seat sits as far as it can go. Also my seat is elevated back about 3 notches. I heard there were a few problems with the seat belt getting in the way if the seat is all the way back. I wanted to confirm if this is a problem because I dont want to buy it then be dissapointed. Thanks


    • You are correct, the installation of the MMD Convertible Styling Bar - Charcoal (94-04 GT, V6, Cobra) would create limitations between how far back your seat can go and your access to your seat belt.

    Is it functional? I don't plan to, but if I were to rollover would the bar prevent me from getting crushed by/stuck under my car?


    • It is not functional. If your looking for rollover safety I would suggest a roll cage.

      Great product/Great price

      This is a definite must for any convertible mustang owner it dramatically changes and completes the look of the car, much more muscular in appearance. I am extremely satisfied with this product and its construction the installation was very time consuming took about 4 hours start to finish fairly simple but remember to measure twice and cut once. The only issue I have noticed is the plastic piece that runs on the underside of it where the material meets will come out on one side and just needs to be pushed back in, after doing this a couple of times I decided to pull the whole piece off from one side and push it back on taking out all of the slack as I went along I have not had a problem with it since.

I was thinking of painting it but didnt need to. I recommend this to anyone with a convertible. It makes the car look alot better and mean. I got it installed at ford cause theyonly charge me 2hrs labour. I didnt want to take hours and be fustrated doing it. i posted a pic of my car. Its the 2 toned 97 (black/silver).

      Superior Exterior Styling Upgrade!

      The MMD convertible styling bar provides that much needed muscle car look to any 94-04 Mustang. It is very durable and matches the stock interior perfectly. This product comes with all of the parts you need but requires quite a few tools for installation. Even though professional installation is recommended, you can do it at home in a few hours. Make sure everything lines up before you drill because it is a very tight fit.The only downside to the MMD styling bar is that you cannot recline the front seats all the way back without the seat belt holder getting it the way. Other than that, this mod is one of the best looking additions on the market today!

      Very Difficult to Install

      I followed the directions and I measured more then twice and it still came out wrong. I had to make holes larger or add more holes just to get the bar secured. I tried to have it professionally done but most modd shops wouldnt even touch it. Simply cause of the holes they would have to cut. Very BAD instructions and templates. I would recommend this cause of how it looks but would NOT recommend cause of the installation. I would say keep your money and buy something else. Mike

      Great bar, but...

      Convertibles and styling bars go together like PB & J - it's just a great fit! The MMD Styling bar was an excellent value, and so I decided to adorn my '99 convertible with this touch of class. Installation was pretty much as described in the (arguably) poor guide, and so I took it upon myself to submit an improved installation guide to American Muscle - it has yet to be received/reviewed at the time of writing this review. My advice to all those considering the MMD Styling Bar is this: the included templates are WRONG!!! Specifically, there are 4 templates included: 2 for the left side, and 2 for the right side; one is for upper hole for the bar to fit through, the other is for the bolt holes to fasten the bar. While the templates for the upper hole(s) were reasonably accurate (I did have to enlarge both holes after having made the initial holes), the bolt holes were the real issue. There are 2 bolt holes per side - an upper and a lower. While the upper bolt hole was very well aligned, the lower bolt hole was SO far off that I could not access the lower bolt heads; the template is incorrect. My final solution was to ensure the panels were in a very warm garage so as not to crack the plastic - from there I had to lift the sill plate and then ever so gently flex the entire lower portion of the panel away so I could access the bolt head. This resulted in slight marking of the panel from the Allan key wrench, as well as some minimal discoloration from the extreme flexing of the panel. Having done all this, the MMD Styling Bar finally did install nicely, and thanks to a somewhat 'generous' lip where the bar meets the panel, it adequately covered the now-oversized holes at the top of the panels where the bar inserts. My only other advice (especially for those of us who are tall) is to find a different seat belt guide. When the seat is fully pushed back, the stock belt guides interfere with the styling bar, robbing precious distance. As well, the stock guides leave permanent indentations in the styling bar! There are aftermarket belt guides with a lower profile that can easily be found and switched out to alleviate this issue. Beyond that, this is a very nice product and it looks very sharp on the car.

      Topless addition

      Finally got around to installing the sttyling bar and I must say it does complete the look for me. Overall, fit and finish is a tick down from being excellent. My only issue was with the supplied templates. They're not quite accurate enough. I had to enlarge the holes in the plastic which meant finding bigger plugs, no biggie. I should have done this long ago. Thanks again AM for a great product

      Decent item

      First off, I will say that the instructions were awful for the installation. Pretty much had to jimmy rig a few things to fit right. Also, the rubber strips holding the bar together started falling down causing the rest of it to tear in places. Not too pleased with that. On the other hand, the look ain't too bad. High price though.

      Poor quality control. Looks great!

      Okay, so I consider myself a better than average mechanic and this was miserable to install mostly due to poor instructions, worse templates, and wrong hardware. My install began with a read through the needed tools. Check. I followed the instructions step by step. Step 2 it asks you to remove the bolt for the upper rear seat and indicates it is held in by two 10mm bolts. I quickly discovered this was not the case. (No problem I thought, I have the right size socket to remove it and other mustangs may have seats held in by a 10mm bolts. This should have been my first indication of how this was going to turn out) The rest of the removal went smoothly. (I think that is why I was led into a sense of security about the install) In step 5 it says to use the included template to cut two 1" holes in the interior panel that will be used to bolt the styling bar to the car. I was very careful to align the upper holes of the template to the holes in the panel and the line to the edge of the panel. I even taped it in place to make sure of its positioning. (Drilling holes in a panel always makes me nervous as even a small error can be costly) During the cutting of the upper hole I discovered I was also drilling through an upper trim mounting clip. When the drill caught the clip it bound up and caused a slight tear to the panel hole. (I hoped the tear would not be bad enough to be seen when the panel plugs were installed, but what could I do about it at this point) I also used the provided template to cut the upper holes also taping them in place. The instructions now tell you to remove the upper trim mounting clip. (Now I start to become a bit irritated that it did not tell me to remove it first before drilling as it would have saved time and undue damage to the panel) Step 9 says there are two provided brackets one marked "L" for left and one "R" for right as they need to go on that side of the car. Neither bracket is marked. (Now I begin to get angry as the pictures are very little help) The brackets are a long flat piece of metal with two threaded barrels pressed/welded to them at both ends and they are closer to one side that the other. So it DOES matter what side you put them on. I make an educated guess that the barrels need to be toward the center of the vehicle. The instructions indicate the small hole in the brackets line up with a small hole in the body of the car. So I decide to just slip the pop-rivet into the hole to make sure it is in the right spot. This is when I discovered the pop-rivets are slightly bigger than the hole in both the bracket and the body of the car. (A few choice words under my breath) I drill out the bracket and body to make it possible to put the pop-rivet in. I mark and drill the 3/4" holes without any issues and I mount the brackets with the pop-rivets as instructed. The instructions now say to reverse the order and reassemble the panels. As soon as I put the panels back on I check the alignment of the holes. The upper holes are fairly aligned with the upper bracket barrels but the lower panel holes appear to be at least 3/4" too high for the barrels. (Now the swearing starts out loud) I realize at this point I have three choices; 1. I can drill new holes in the panels for all to see, 2. I can pull it all apart and cut the brackets down, drill new holes higher up and reassemble or 3. try and put in the upper bolts and hope it is sturdy enough. I elect to go with #3 option as I am into the install almost 4 hours now. (I started the project at 5pm in my driveway and it is now almost dark. Flashlight time) I hand thread one of the upper bolts a couple of turns and it stops. Thinking I may have cross-threaded it I back it out and attempt again with the same result. I remember the brackets were painted and think there must be some paint in the barrels and this is the reason why I cannot thread the bolts through so I use a wrench to push through the paint. I get a couple of more turns in and the bolt stops. (I think to myself - Oh no! I've cross-threaded it!) I attempt to back the bolt out and get it most the way out when I hear something fall down the panel to the bottom. I look and see the barrel had come loose and fallen off. (Lots of swear words here) I quit for the night. Next morning I pull the whole thing apart and discover the bolts will not thread into any of the barrels. It appears as if someone had put metric barrels on the brackets and standard bolts in the hardware bag. I also measured the distance between the upper and lower barrels center to center, 6.75", and the distance on the template for the holes center to center, 6.25" (The swear words are back right where they left off) Okay, now I've had it with the instructions. This is where I knock off the other barrels from the brackets with a hammer and flat blade screwdriver, go to the hardware store and buy four extruded "U" nuts that actually fit the bolts, drill new holes in the brackets and the body of the car to meet with the panel holes and put the extruded nuts on the brackets and reinstall them using duct tape to hold them in place until the bolts were threaded. I also had to make the lower holes in the styling bar longer to reach the narrower gap in the brackets. Finally!!! Success!!! Love it now its on but 12 hour job... I averaged it to 3 stars from - 5 for looks and 1 for poor quality control on the manufacturer.

      Extremely poor installation gear

      Pros: Looks fantastic, very well made with a steel bar running through the center. Cons: Extremely difficult to install. The included brackets strip the screws because of very poorly placed welds on the inside of the threads. We ended up making our own braces from old airplane parts. This is unacceptable build quality, and I wouldn't recommend trying to install this without a professional mechanic helping.
