Hi all, iv just purchased an 06 mustang convertible im wondering how the soft top is for driving during the winter, where
I live we get real cold winters and sometimes lots of snowfall , my question ia not about the handling of the car I understand that part im not new to rear wheel driving im concerened about the soft top during winter and what I can do to prevent damage to the top and keep the interrior warm as I am driving the car occasionally all year.
All comments are appreciated
I have had year round verts in the past. Don't scrape the roof with anything but your gloves, or throw a car cover on the nights that the snow is significant. As for keeping the interior warm, run the heater, keep the windows and roof closed.
Get yourself a blue plastic painter's tarp (8x10) and some bungee cords as a car cover. Don't let too much snow accumulate (that is, don't let a foot of snow or more accumulate) because it can get heavy and stretch the fabric. I see that around Boston where someone will let their Jeep sit all winter in the city with 2 feet of heavy snow on the rag top. In the springtime, the car has a sagging roof.
I'm from Edmonton and I am fortunate not to have to drive my vert n the winter....you better have some darn good snow tires...our roads are darn slippery . I would put a good protectant on the top.You can buy them on eBay...cleaner+protectant.....i also saw it at freedom ford some time ago.Do you have a garage? You might want to invest in a good quality car cover.I wouldn't want a rear drive vert in our icy snowy winters.Good luck.is it a Gt? Post some pics
