Me too but it's still too early to tell how well it will come out; still, you have to handed it to the Autonexion guys for coming up with new stuff for miatas.

it's looking pretty good, but i fear the final product is going to look odd. but for a TT car, should be butterz.


btw, finally an address 16601, anyone know what street that is on lots o' parts in the garage.

Man I hope the final product ends up with the same quality (at least seen from the photos) as his other products. I'm excited... I want it...

I've loved the idea of that thing since day one. I only wish he would just make it a full replacement top. I bet he could make the whole thing and sell it for the same price people pay for the stock one.

evidently he's designing it so that the trunk is still usable.

It's either going to be hideous... or look so good I'd give a nut for one.

Looks good. If they sold a kit like that for my 99 I'd probably buy it. That looks mean.

I think the bondo is only for sculpting purposes until the final mold is made from FG

Adds a ton of weight but the aero would be really good.

I've been watching the progress on this too. I think it looks good, hopefully it's not too heavy.

Actually, I like it... Something about the rear could be changed but I have always liked the Miata Coupe... I think it'd look cool on my '99.

Yes, to me it has to do with the width where it meets the back of the car. I find that part too narrow but I do like the concept.

I also agree with neo; he should make a complete hardtop in FG to substitute the original one. For some reason I've never liked my car's hardtop.
