Is this factory or??

I had my 03 GT up on the lift for the first time today, this is my first convertible Mustang, I'm curious if what look like subframe connectors and the triangle shaped brace attatched to the front crossmember are factory or did someone add these? Lousy cell pics sorry...

The triangle shaped thing is a convertible x brace, The other looks like subframe connectors to me.

Yep, same worthless flimsy subframe connectors my Bullitt came with. I don't know why Ford even wasted the materials to make them, they're flimsy and only held on with 2 tiny bolts on each end.

The K Member brace is nice though, I have one on my car.

If it weren't for physics and law enforcement, I'd be unstoppable.
