Product Description

1987-1993 Mustang Fox Body 5.0 Resto Convertible J-Hook & Dowel Pin Receptacle Kit
The 1983-1993 Fox Body Mustang convertible top j-hook and dowel pin receptacles play an crucial role in securing the convertible top to the windshield top panel. The dowel pins located on the convertible top frame slide into the plastic dowel pin receptacles to achieve perfect alignment between the top frame and the windshield top panel. The j-hook receptacles provide a place for the j-hooks to securely latch.

Direct Replacement
If any of these parts are showing signs of wear replace them today! A failed j-hook receptacle has the potential to allow the convertible top on your Mustang to fly open at highway speeds. This 5.0 Resto J-Hook & Dowel Pin Receptacle Kit is a direct replacement to ensure your convertible top stays secured to the car!

1 Stars   Not a good product
By on 10/23/2016
These are not the same quality of the originals and not up to the LMR standard. When first opened I was concerned about the thinner plastic used for the parts. Then was perturbed that there were no predrilled holes. This leaves you guessing where to drill since the "pilot holes" were no where close the where they needed to be. What should have been a few minutes turned into over an hour. THe worst part came after getting them installed. When I attached the first JHook and closed the clamp it immediately cracked in two pieces. Before making the same mistake on the other side I removed both of them and replaced my old ones.

It is absurd the holes are not there and even more stupid that the pilot holes to drill the holes are in the WRONG spot.

This was purchased for a 89 Mustang Convertible. the fit is nice, but be prepared to drill a tiny screw hole into these new receptacles with a small bit as they do not have a pre-drilled hole.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Purchased these for my convertible. Old parts were in need of replacement. These fit perfect. You need to drill the screw holes, not a big deal. Just don't repeat my mistake of drilling the holes in the pilot locations on the new parts (you'll know what I'm talking about when you receive the parts). Match the new parts to your old ones to ensure the holes align.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Low quality plastic and ill-fitting, compared to OEM and the holes are not drilled, making for a very inconvenient, time consuming install.

The old plastics that i had were almost completely cracked away so with the installation my convertible top is secured down way better now. Only complaint is that to get the correct fitment, a little bit of fiddling was required, but aside from that, perfect product.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
