Mazda RX-7, 1988-92
Convertible Top and Convertible Top Parts

Mazda RX-7 Key Features:
  • Quality: Made to Mazda specs, 100% fit guarantee.
  • Original Configuration: The RX-7 convertible top design is unusual. Like most two-part tops, the RX-7 top features a front and rear section. But instead of integrating the two sections as is necessary with most convertible tops, the RX-7 front piece works more like a Targa top: A bar stretches across the top of the car. You attach the front section to its own frame and you attach the rear section to the top bar.
    This type of installation makes the RX-7 convertible top one of the easier convertible tops to install. You will need to re-use your old window. Most DIY Mazda RX-7 convertible top restorers are able to transfer the window section from the old convertible top to the new top. 
    Our Mazda RX-7 convertible top installation manual will walk you through Mazda RX-7 do-it-yourself installation.
  • Original Factory Material: Vinyl
  • Original Window: Glass. (You will reuse original window with RX-7 convertible top restoration.)
  • Original Colors: Black
  • Alternate Materials: Haartz Stayfast Canvas
  • Package Specials: Cost savings for all of your installation needs with package specials, this can include the detailed manual, contact cement, pry tools, and sometimes, cleaning supplies.
  • Shop with confidence: 5 year manufacturer warranty.

THE ORIGINAL MAZDA RX-7 CONVERTIBLE TOP PACKAGE

Comfortable with contact cement? Handy with a pry tool? Good. Because those are the skills you'll need to install your RX-7 top. This two-part top is one of the easiest convertible tops to install yourself -- the front and rear pieces attach to your car separately, so no integration is necessary. You'll recycle your old rear window, and the top design lets you snap it in place easily. What could be better? A great deal, of course. And that's where this Best Buy RX-7 Convertible Top package comes in. The package includes:

  • Mazda RX-7 Convertible Top in Original Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl with Attached Rain Guards
  • RX-7 Convertible Top Installation Manual
  • 4-oz Can of Contact Cement
  • Convertible Top Plastic Pry Tool

Without Hoses

Important Information
Original Factory Color(s): Black

Why doesn't my top include a rear window?

The RX-7 convertible top rear windows are not made anymore. So you must re-use your glass window in its original framework. The window snaps into the frame, and the frame attaches to the new top.

Which RX-7 convertible top fabric should I buy?

We offer the Mazda RX-7 in Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl and also in elegant Haartz Stayfast Canvas. Here's what you need to know about each material before you make your purchase:
Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl: Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl is a two-ply composite with a PVC outer layer and a cotton inner lining. Pinpoint refers to the little dots on the vinyl surface. The original Mazda RX-7 convertible top was very similar to Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl. Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl is a popular convertible top fabric. In fact, this fabric is original to most American cars made before 1993. If you take care of a Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl RX-7 top, it can easily last 10 years.
Haartz Stayfast Canvas: If you're looking to upgrade your vinyl RX-7 top, consider a convertible top made of Haartz Stayfast Canvas. This fabric is the American substitute for the German canvases used in Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, as well as some Mustang and Lebaron models. Haartz Stayfast Canvas is a three-ply composite material made of an acrylic square-weave outer fabric, a butyl rubber core, and a cotton lining. The butyl rubber core promises to make Haartz Stayfast Canvas last a very long time. This canvas is a little richer looking than the vinyl. It's also a little harder to clean. Stayfast Canvas has both better static and dynamic wear ratings than vinyl tops.

Should I purchase this top with or without hoses?
The Mazda RX-7 uses drain hoses to direct water out to the fender wells, instead of into your trunk. We sell tops with or without new attached hoses, but generally recommend if you're purchasing a new top you should buy one with the attached new hoses. Though you can re-use your old hoses on your new top, the RX-7 tops with attached new hoses only cost $10 more than comparable tops without hoses. That $10 will save you the hassle of re-attaching your hoses, which can be a chore.

Do I need new drain hoses?
Rain guards are attached to the new top behind the door jambs. They attach to the drain hoses. New rain guards are supplied with our tops. Hoses can generally be re-used several times. They are listed with accessories if needed. If your hoses are shot you can order our top with new hoses pre-attached to save some labor. For the extra $10 that it will cost, that's what we generally recommend as re-attaching old hoses can be a hassle. Or you can order, separately, the drain hose attachment kit (new hoses plus accessories and instructions for full installation.)

Can I install this top myself?
Yes! Just keep in mind that the RX-7 convertible top design is unusual. Like most two-part tops, the RX-7 top features a front and rear section. But instead of integrating the two sections as is necessary with most convertible tops, the RX-7 front piece works more like a Targa top: A bar stretches across the top of the car. You attach the front section to its own frame and you attach the rear section to the top bar.
This type of installation makes the RX-7 convertible top one of the easier convertible tops to install. You will need to re-use your old window. Most Mazda RX-7 convertible top restorers are able to transfer the window section from the old convertible top to the new top.
Our Mazda RX-7 convertible top installation manual will walk you through Mazda RX-7 do-it-yourself installation.

What will your RX-7 Convertible Top Installation Manual tell me?
We offer a 16 page 8 1/2 x 11 illustrated step-by-step installation manual. This is a step by step manual specifically for the RX-7 convertible top removal and installation. This was written especially for the first time installer and elaborates all removal and installation steps. The work involves stapling or tacking and the use of contact cement and a couple of rivets or metal screws. The most difficult part is the transfer of the rear window frame which is very doable for the handy person. The glass is installed by manipulating the window seal over the lip of the steel window frame. This involves a common procedure called "roping in." It is something that any auto glass shop can do.

What about RX-7 Headliners?
We offer the headliner for the convertible interior roof. It includes the plastic section below the back window sewn in. Also included is sufficient yardage for the front section. The other plastic piece must be transferred from the old headliner. The headliner is listed with "Accessories." We offer replacement boots in leather grained boot vinyl. Our boot comes with the 15 tenax fasteners required.

CONVERTIBLE TOP FABRICS
Almost all manufacturers use Haartz fabrics. They may specify "heaviest weight" or "original replacement" in ways that seem reassuring. But they do not really tell the whole story. Please bear in mind that two things dominate, by far, the quality issue: (a) the manufacturing quality control in the factory that makes the top and (b) the care and thoroughness of the installation. There is a trade-off in weight: heavier is better for resisting tear through, but lighter is better for flexibility and abrasion from within that may arise from movement. Almost all our tops are a flexible medium density (36 oz.) fabric. Heavier is not better in most cases. Where it is, because of the top design, we will say so and the top will be made of the heavier vinyl.
We will be happy to quote you on a "true double texture vinyl" top. This is a pinpoint with a butyl rubber core, like our stayfast. Generally these tops are about 30 percent higher in price than the regular pinpoint version.
  • Sonnenland® (View) is a German-made 3-ply topping made up of an acrylic twill-weave facing, a rubber inner-layer, and a polyester "dobby backing." The dobby backing is a knit-like weave original to many high-end foreign cars. Customers who value originality over cost often pay top dollar for Sonnenland, just to have that authentic "dobby backing," seen only when you look up at the roof of your convertible top from inside your car. Sonnenland canvas is a top-of-the-line material original to various Audi, BMW, and Jaguar convertibles, among others. Sonnenland Canvas can vary in terms of surface weave and/or weight for acoustic performance, but all Sonnenland Canvas promises elegance and long-lasting durability.
  • Twillfast® (View), also called Sonnendeck Canvas, is an American-made canvas - a cost-effective substitute for Sonnenland. Twillfast is usually a 3-ply topping (though some versions are 5-ply) with Polyester and/or Polyester/cotton backings. This material, original to certain Camaro, BMW, Mustang, and VW Beetle convertibles, among others, varies in terms of surface weave and/or weight for acoustic performance. Twillfast Canvas is identical to Sonnenland Canvas - elegant and durable - only it's less expensive. This is a top-notch convertible top material, one we often recommend to savvy customers who like a good buy and a quality product.
  • Stayfast Canvas (View) is an elegant, durable canvas original to cars like the Mazda Miata and the Nissan 370Z. Stayfast is commonly used in replacement convertible tops. Stayfast canvas has an acrylic square weave facing, a rubber inner-layer, and a cotton backing. As with other canvases, the rubber core gives the fabric long-lasting durability. Stayfast canvas is a sleek, beautiful canvas, usually less expensive than Twillfast, but it does not have the dobby backing offered in Sonnenland and Twillfast (Sonnendeck). Stayfast is a popular upgrade to vinyl convertible tops, and as with any canvas, is richer looking and has a higher wear rating than convertible tops made of vinyl.
  • Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl (View) is the most popular fabric. This vinyl design is original to most American cars from the fifties to the nineties. Pinpoint refers to the little dots or pips that you see if you look closely at the vinyl surface. European cars, such as the old Beetles and others also used pinpoint vinyl as the topping fabric.
  • Chrysler Sailcloth (View) is featured on many late LeBarons, Sebrings, certain Mustangs and other cars. It is structurally (wear quality) equivalent to the Haartz Pinpoint but has a different surface grain. The grain was designed to imitate the look of canvas. As you can see from the scan of this fabric, it is an exceptionally rich looking material. It is sometimes chosen for replacing convertible tops that originally featured pinpoint vinyl.
  • Cabrio Grain (View) is also structurally equivalent to the pinpoint. It has a pigskin outer grain vinyl as original to Volkswagen Cabriolets from 1984 onward and to Mazda Miatas and Mercury Capris.
  • A5S German Canvas (Robbins) The 100% Acrylic Twill Weave Surface Cloth receives a special flame singing treatment to remove the fabric knap; and is laminated to Black 100% Polyester Dobby backing.

    This is the original topping for Porsche Boxster and Cabrio convertible tops. 59 inches (150 cm) wide, made in Germany.
  • British Bison (also called Colonial Grain) (View) is the American made crush grain vinyl that imitates the much more expensive British Everflex vinyl original to many British convertibles. Color selection is limited. These are often referred to as 'crush grain' or 'leather grain' vinyls. They are structurally equivalent (wear rating) to the pinpoint, cabrio, and sailcloth vinyls.
  • British Everflex Vinyl (View) We are now pleased to offer British Everflex Vinyl for classic English tops. This is the original material used on British convertibles including Jaguar, Rolls Royce and many others. Imported from England, British Everflex vinyl is a supple vinyl with a rich appearance and is more durable than other vinyls. A good, less expensive alternative is Colonial grain vinyl. Colonial has the same texture but is less durable.
  • HV Denim (also called Twill Weave Vinyl) (View) is heavy duty sport material composed of a distinctive twill grain PVC outer layer and a polyester/cotton blend inside lining fabric.
  • Trilogy Acoustic Vinyl (View) A heavyweight vinyl that is often used on SUVs like Jeep, because the two-ply composite has the capacity to reduce noise by about 20 percent compared to standard vinyls like Sailcloth. The vinyl material is durable, promises long-lasting wear-and-tear, and resembles the sleek twill cloth commonly found on luxury convertible cars.
  • Haartz Twillfast RPC (View) This American-made canvas has a twill weave pattern and resembles German-made Sonnenland canvas. It is a great all-purpose canvas and, according to Haartz, is used on 99 percent of convertibles. It is stronger and more durable than Stayfast Canvas and offers more sound protection. Haartz rates Twillfast RPC as a mid-level acoustic product, compared to the low-level sound reduction offered on other top materials like Stayfast
