Default Thoughts on this hardtop?

MAZDA Hard top Miata

Not sure how I feel about this hardtop. I hear the back glass replacements are quite expensive unless you fab your own with lexan.

Think it would be worth it if I could get it for ~$200? Or should I just leave it alone?

Been trying to skim craigslist for a cheap hardtop for a while now...

I'd grab it for $200 or less.
Looks like it does have some structural damage but SMC is easy to work with.
Fix it up, toss a lexan window at it and some paint. You could have a nice top for under $350.

Dude, NO. That's a $50 top at the most.

if you don't mind spending a ton of time trying to fix it, and are good with fiberglass/plastic repair/bodywork, and are cheap, and are OKAY with it still not being perfect when you're done, then get it for 200.

Otherwise pass.

It looks like its quite a bit more than just "missing window"
