On mobile version, no sigs so I didn't know. They also have them for NB. Just not as nice. If I had an NB I would go with the garage star for $70

My bad, I didn't see that version for the NB before. I just got on the Moss website to look at the $35 NB version, and it seems pretty worthless.

I like my free cover made from scrap metal and duct tape. It doesn't look pretty though. I should probably do something about that.

well they make na ones too that cover the whole piece, apparently the msm has a slightly different shape to it or something too because I have seen ones that say "not mazdaspeed" but they fit 99-05. I guess ill be just making one when I get some time just to make sure I get some airflow where it needs to be.

I didnt see a garage star for 70ish that wasnt the hood latch delete version. I almost bought one of those since they are nice but I realized at the last second that it said it was for cars running hood pins and not oem latch.

It didnt have a spot for the release arm at all and thats what made it look so nice and clean. Ahhh who am I kidding, I dont want to spend 70 bux on that either lol.

EDIT: they do have one for 70, I must have opened the same link in two tabs on my computer. I have been looking up so many parts this week its just driving me nuts.

Garagestar has them for the NB at $70, with fancy finishing washers and stainless bolts in brushed. I'll probably fab one for my NA, as it's flat and simple. I'm lazy and would buy the one for an NB. I'd have done it already, but I think I want to install aerocatches and delete my latch.

They make a great place to stick all of those stickers you'll accumulate. I've got MiataRoadster, Flyin Miata, 949Racing, Beatrush, Racing Beat, and some others just waiting to go somewhere.

Edit: I see that there may have been a second page that I didn't read. >.> <.<

In my car, the radiator is leaned back so far that I have to have the top piece to seal the radiator to the mouth. Without it air would just go up and over the radiator.

I have not had any issues with cooling since the install but it would look a lot nicer with a piece there and it may cool better. There is a decent gap between my fans and the radiator at this point so im sure the air could have a better path to flow into rather than up and over it.
