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.
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 quality Haartz Stayfast cloth/canvas. Stayfast is a three ply composite made of a square weave outer fabric, a rubber inner layer and a plain cotton lining fabric. It has been UV treated to improve color fastness when exposed to the sun.
Why You Should Consider a Pre-installed Rain Rail
We offer designs either with or without a rain rail. The 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.
