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.
