MIATA INSTALL-IT-YOURSELF CONVERTIBLE TOP PACKAGE
Confident using an air-driven staple gun? Comfortable with contact cement? Then we believe you can install your own Miata top--and save hundreds of dollars on labor costs! Our Miata Best Buy Install-it-Yourself Package can help. The package includes:
Original Cabrio Vinyl Miata Convertible Top with Zippered Plastic Window
Original Factory Color(s): Black, Mazda Tan and Light Tan
Difference between zippered and non-zipper tops: Zippered tops, as original, can have the rear window lowered while the top is up. Lowering of a glass window top which has a zipper requires that the zipper be unzipped prior to the lowering of the top.
Non-zipper window tops have been redesigned so that they are easier to install, do not require fussing with a zipper to raise and lower, and they are less expensive.
Available colors: Original colors in Miata vinyl are black (#1002), Mazda tan (#1414) and Saddle (#1717). Other colors are available but will take more time to deliver and will incur a surcharge.
You may order a top in Haartz Stayfast canvas, which can be custom made to original patterns in any of the colors shown.
The Rain Rail (Gutter): The rain rail, at the base of the top, guides water into drains near the rear wheels. A new rain rail is required in a top replacement only when the current one is apparently damaged. Most often the old rain rail can be cleaned and applied with the new top.
Original riveting of the rain rail to the base of the top was done to facilitate transporting. It is not necessary to rivet the rain rail to the new top as this serves no functional purpose!
It will therefore be easier if a new rain rail is required, to purchase it separately.
Typically a factory quality rain rail will last through three or more tops. We offer durable rain rail replacements, listed with accessories. We also offer an Economy Rain Rail which functions as well but is "lighter duty." It is made of thinner vinyl and has base line plastic reinforcement. It should last for about two tops.
Hold down cables: There is one cable on each side of the car embedded in the top. The cables fasten the top (front and rear on each side) to the frame and provide variable tension to the top sides as it is raised and lowered. New cables have stainless steel plates replacing the original plastic ones.
Do-It-Yourself Installation: Our step by step, Miata top instruction booklet covers all the steps in the removal of the old top and the installation of the new top. Miata tops are not difficult to install. There no sewing or stapling. The use of pop rivets, contact cement and some fastidious removal and replacing of bolts and screws is required.
On another page we list the "Easy Install" tops with non-zipper windows. Design changes, besides the elimination of the zipper, are described. These tops are even easier to install.
__________________________________________________________________________________ Just a quick note saying "thanks" for a great product. I received my Miata Econo top earlier this week and installed it today. Took me about 7 hours but I've got a super looking top that fits like a glove. Your instructions are not only very accurate, but supportive in the little details like keeping hands clean with a light colored top (mine is tan) and using the fork for the clips. I was able to reuse every clip I removed. The construction and material look to be very durable. I'll recommend your company to my other Miata friends.
