    Roll bar does not have to be removed to install the top. Yeah, it’s a little harder but not impossible. I’m just afraid a “pro,” unfamiliar with Miatas is going to calculate removing the roll bar at which point, you’d have to consider resealing everything inderneath with undercoating...again .

    Easiest way to replace the top in my opinion is to remove the frame from the car and do it off. Then you don't have to worry about contortions and throwing something out. It's what, three bolts on each side and the 14 or so at the rear (once you get the carpet out of the way).

    That’s what we ended up doing last time. Only three bolts per side and a bunch for the rain rail. Plus MM already has a spare parcel shelf we can cut into thirds.

    Re: Convertible Top Waranty

    When my top was replaced by Robbins, under warranty, I had the box just show up, like you did. Mine took three months. A year or more later I got a call wanting to know if I still had the old top to send them. The warranty divisions seem to run a little slow. We should be able to change tops, even with the roll bar. Can't be any harder than some of the cars that I've done with built-in bars.

    They are still asking me for the serial number and still looking for it. If I can find it I don't have to replace the top right away.
