Mazda NB Top on NA

NB Soft top with defroster Glass window and top frame.

Took me about 6 hours to remove old top and install this one. Had to transplant the rain rail. If I had to do it again, I think I could do it in 2 hours.

This is one of the best things an NA owner can do for his car. The top is so much better fitting, quieter and easy to use than the NA top. Plus it was a much less expensive alternative to the aftermarket defroster glass window tops. (I bought it gently used off a '99 that had been turned into a track car) I am extremely pleased with the results.

Mazda M2 Soft-top and Frame

'99 Factory Softtop installed on a '95 Miata

I installed a '99 top + frame on my '95 about 2 months ago. It is actually a very straight-forward, bolt-in job. If you have everything figured out before starting, it'll take you less than 3 hours if you work very slowly. The top has made the Miata experience an entirely new one for me. I no longer debate if I should to put the top up when I'm at the mall, 'cos I can lower my top in 2 seconds flat.

The top cost me $750, which I thought was *very cheap* for what you get. Try pricing an aftermarket piece with just the rain rail/gutter, glass window, and defroster! Also, with the much, much, much simpler installation, you'll save about $200 on a professional installation.

A friend of mine has a Robbins top with glass window, and she's been begging me to install a '99 top on her '90 Miata. The new top looks really gorgeous on my car!!!

I'm VERY pleased with the top. It's the best add-on any M1 owner can add to his/her Miata.(ranks right up there with the FMIII Turbo! :o))
