  • Rollbar

    I was looking at ordering a rollbar today, but I can't find one that I like that is compatible with an aftermarket glass soft top, and a hardtop...
    Here is what i found:

    I want the look/functionality of the hardcore bar over just the roll hoops.

    I'm not sure what you were linking to. But I am a HardDog dealer, and do offer a Hard Core that will be compatible with hardtop and OEM or OEM like glass top.

      I wasn't sure if it would fit since it didn't really specify.

        Call Bethania Garage (www.bethania-garage.com), who makes Hard Dog. They will tell you what aftermarket glass tops will and will not fit with the M2 Hard Core Hard Top, which is what you will need with a glass window and hardtop. I was about to get a glass rear window top for my car, but wanted their integrated harness bar, so I sacrificed and stayed with the plastic rear window.

        Also, because it is coming up soon, in January, Flyin Miata offers free shipping on all Hard Dog roll bars. Only free shipping on accessories when they are ordered with the bar at the same time. Saves some good money.

          Greg, the Ace bar that you linked to will basically fit any 90-05 Miata, any top, any hard top, but depends on the configuration of the harness bar and diagonals. However, it does not offer the same amount of protection as the Hard Core or Sport because it is shorter in height. Not good for track protection, or as I felt, protection overall.

            No like this http://www.bethania-garage.com/m2hardcore_hardtop.htm
            Prices are as listed. Bethania does not allow any discount of any kind. And the reality is, after we pay the cc or pp processing fee, there's no margin anyway.

            We'll still help ya out tho. You can even have the bar shipped to my loading dock and we can do tech day type thing to install it at the shop.

                I have a bainstorm roll bar which is what the ace was roughly based off of. It probably won't give you the height clearance for an official track day, but it is back behind the seat so you won't knock your head on it in an accident on the street. It all comes down to what you are going to use the car for.

                  Well it won't be tracked, but I do want something that is taller than my head. In the picture, the ACE bar is almost level with the top of the seats. My head goes about 4-5 inches above the seats... In a rollover, you'd be kinda screwed...

                      It seems more and more people are looking for an install day. I'll ask a few people.

                            Lol, fair point. But we made yours match up reasonably well.

                              Seriously though. We need an install day. I'd be game to have it at my place if need be. I can fit about 8 Miatas in the driveway, and I live in a cul-de-sac too so...
