    I hated working on my ex-wife's chevy. That thing was alway having problems. Like a rock for sure, try and get to their parts without disassembling a whole lot of crap.

    The brace and jacking rails probably added no more than an extra 10 pounds I would guess. Maybe 20.

    that don't sound so bad, so the bracing thing helps out alot huh, and the jacking rail is mainly just for jacking up the car?

    Yep. This is important for convertibles. They flex a lot.

    Just get some additional bracing (Matrix brace) and some jacking rails, get your doors and windows tightened up, and be good... :bunny3:
