1990-1997 MAZDA MIATA CONVERTIBLE TOP
1 Piece Style Cabrio Vinyl Non-Zippered Plastic Window
Unique Built In Sunroof that does not affect the operation of the Top.
This is a non-original one-piece design similar to the 2006 and newer MX5. They are made from the same materials and quality as the two-piece factory original style convertible tops, but because of the design change, are less expensive to manufacture.
DO YOU NEED A RAIN RAIL?
Although not necessary, you should at least read the following before deciding on replacing the rain rail when you are replacing your convertible top.
We offer both designs either with or without a rain rail. A rain rail is a U-shaped, molded ABS plastic piece that attaches to the rear bottom of the convertible top. It directs any water collected out drain holes to keep it from entering your interior cabin and trunk.
Unless your convertible top is leaking, you probably can reuse your existing rain rail, however, there is one good reason you should consider replacing it.
There is a significant amount of time and labor involved to drill out the old rain rail and reinstall it on a new top properly - without any wrinkles. If you are doing it yourself, and are sure your existing rain rail is in good shape then you can save some money by purchasing a new top without the rain rail. But, if you are using a professional installer, the amount of additional labor they will charge to do this work will likely offset any savings you have from not buying a new rain rail already installed.
DO YOU NEED NEW TENSION CABLES?
Most likely you will not need to buy new tension cables when replacing your convertible top.
Like most convertible tops, the Miata uses steel tension cables that are threaded into the pockets that run along the side windows. You can check your existing cables easily. With the top up and windows open, run your fingers along the edge of the top until you feel the cable inside edge of the top. If it feels tight, then it can most likely be reused when you replace your old convertible top. If it is loose, then it still may just need to be re-tensioned during the installation of the new top or you may need a new set of spring loaded tension cables.
An installer can also repair damaged tension cables, but if you would like to also replace the tension cables at the same time you replace your convertible top, choose your model year from the accessories to the right.
Includes a new tinted DOT approved plastic that is sewn-in for added durability.
Manufactured using premium 38 oz. Cabrio Vinyl manufactured for that original look and feel. This is the same weight and grain found on the original Miata convertible tops. It is a two-ply composite made of PVC cabrio grain and a 100% polyester lining fabric, which is superior in strength, durability and flexibility to standard cotton backing convertible tops.
