The world of replacement Mazda Miata convertible tops is surprisingly complicated! Over the next few blog posts, I will delve into some of the various different options available for Miata owners who want to replace their tops, and what these options mean.
For the 1989-1997 Miata MX5 and MX5 Eunos, the first thing you have to decide is whether you want a top that has the 1-piece look, or the 2-piece look.
As you can see, the main difference here is what’s happening at the lower corners of the convertible top’s rear window. In the 2-piece look, the top quarters overlap both sides of the window so that it looks as though the window is part of a 2-piece top insert.
On the other hand, the “1-piece look” Mazda Miata top has the window sealed directly to the top. Without the overlapping rear quarters, you end up with a smooth top that appears to be made from one piece of fabric.
Both of these replacement convertible tops will fit these Mazda Miata models. It’s just a matter of which one you prefer. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
