If you own a Mustang convertible, chances are that you are somebody that likes to stand out from the crowd. Whether you are displaying your high-powered Mustang engine on the open highway or if you are cruising through town, your Mustang convertible will certainly warrant a few double takes from the masses.
In this day and age, it is often an arms race between Mustang owners to see who has the coolest muscle car in the group. If you are looking to truly elevate your Mustang convertible, you should think about installing a Mustang styling bar or Mustang light bar on your vehicle. Mustang styling bars and Mustang light bars create a more aggressive appearance for your Mustang, while helping you honor Mustang convertibles from the First Generation at the same time.
Mustang light bars are engineered to fit naturally within the curves and lines of your Ford Mustang. The Mustang styling bars are installed right behind the front seats, and do not interfere with any factory functions. Though Mustang styling bars are mainly for show rather than security, they can perform an important safety function. Some Mustang light bars are equipped with an illumination that acts as a third brake light for your vehicle. If you are forced to stop on a poorly-lit backroad at night due to a tree being down, the cars coming from way behind will be able to notice your Mustang light bar’s brake light, and will know to slow down when they are approaching your vehicle.
While Mustang styling bars can enhance your convertible’s appearance, they can also be a detriment if they are not properly maintained. After many years of cruising around on the open road with the top down, your Mustang styling bars can become negatively affected by the sun, mud or dirt being kicked up in its direction, as well as natural rust due to old age. Driving with a rusted out Mustang styling bar defeats its entire purpose, and after a while, it might be wise to think about replacing you existing equipment.
