2 Piece Factory Style - Cabrio Vinyl - Zippered Heated Glass Window
This convertible top is the Miata original factory 2 piece design with deck seams and overlapping quarter panels. It includes pre-punched plastic retainers to ease installation. Window opens with an easy pull zipper and you do not need to unzip the window before you lower the convertible top.
About the Glass Window
Years of development and engineering went into this convertible top window bonding method. The objective was to design and develop a manufacturing method and process that would virtually eliminate window separation or leaking....the number one failure for glass window convertible tops. The result was a patented production technology that involves wrapping the fabric around an internal ring that adheres to the glass. A new bonding agent was specially created by 3M engineers based on military specification during the development phase to ensure this adhesive, when applied in a multi-step automated process, could withstand extreme tension in all temperatures.
About the Material
Manufactured using premium 38 oz. Cabrio Vinyl manufactured by Haartz 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 100% polyester lining for maximum durability. Our Miata convertible tops are always cut from the same roll of material to ensure the color, texture and thickness are consistent from the front section, quarter panels and everything in between. The patterns have been created by hand and tested in production and on vehicles for the perfect fit. Then, those patterns are digitized so the material can be consistently cut by computer controlled Gerber cutting equipment over and over again.
Why You Should Consider a Pre-installed Rain Rail
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 top is leaking, you may not a new rain rail, however, there are good reasons you should consider getting one anyway.
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 your rain rail is brittle or cracked it will leak and cause problems. We offer the option to add a factory installed rain rail. We'll professionally install the rain rail to the convertible top before shipping. This only adds one day to the delivery at most, but may be done the same day.
