Default Roll Bar

Selling my roll bar. the buyer backed out after waiting for his response for 3 weeks. here it is again. it is now confirmed that it can clear a soft top with the roll bar padding still on.

Is that bumper cover just trimmed, or do you have some kind of ducting under there as well?

Is the bar clean underneath the padding? Not all beat up etc?
I think that if it can clear a soft top, the hard top shouldn't be hard to fit as long as it doesn't interfere with the side latches and the top bar doesn't sit too far back. Do you have any other pictures?
Would you be willing to meet at the SC/GA line on I-85? Should be about a 50 minute drive for you. If so, PM me, and we'll work out the details.

How much for a full cage that will fit under a hardtop. For inspiration in the style I'm looking for drop a hand full of spaghetti in a vase. Excess is beautiful. Make it cheap mild steel, I plan on painting it.

The only way we would build a full cage would be if your car was here. We don't have a miata laying around to just mock a full cage up. Rollbars are a different story, they're easy.

Never heard back, but still waiting. I'm willing to drive 2 hours to get a good, solid roll bar.
