Convertible? Maybe worth it?

Hey guys, I know that this is really unrealistic, but i was curious how much it would be to switch my 2004 to a convertible. I can get all the parts pretty darn cheap from a car scrap yard. I know that it will be unlikely that I will ever do this, I was thinking that it might be worth the investment if the number is low enough.

Im far from an expert at this but I would imagine it would be very difficult considering all the hardware recquired. I hate to be the guy to say this but if you want a convertible that badly I would recomend selling yours and getting one.

I also have no experience at this but I highly doubt it would be worth it, especially if you do it properly and stiffen up the chassis to compensate for taking the roof out.

I was just curious, I would like a convertible but I'm not obsessing over the idea. It's just that since I live in Texas, the weather typically favors top/windows down idea. I will probably pick a convertible for my new mustang in a few years.
