Default Mazda Motorsports NC hardtop - anyone seen one?

I'm searching for a race hardtop for my former MX-5 Cup car NC with a full cage. If you think hardtops for NA/NBs are hard to come by, the NCs are even harder.

I'm considering the CCP and the Treasure Coast lightweight hardtops. Mazda Motorsports/Mazdaspeed also sells a racing hardtop for the NC, part # 0000-07-5901.

There's no pic on the site and here's all the info:

0000-07-5901-CC
@ HARDTOP, FIBERGLASS NC
Notes: PWC TCA & TC INCLUDES BRA

MX-5 Miata
ALL
2006 - 2015
$1095.00



I cannot find a pic of one anywhere. Does anyone have a pic or even seen one? I appreciate any input.

I think that's a DG top. Might try searching that.

I'm almost positive it's just a DG race top. I think I saw a picture in one of their "Featured Product" emails.

Interesting because the Mazdaspeed price is $200 less than the price on the DG site.

Good point. Maybe it's CCP then. It's definitely one of the two, and not a third option that's specific to Mazda Comp.

Continental Cup MX-5's ran either the DG Motorsports or CCP Fabrication tops. I remember reading a petition to run them instead of OEM tops. Image below doesn't have frankenstein tabs. I found others that show a thinner lower bar that looks like CCP's instead of DG's.

I'm 99% sure that's an OEM top on that car. It doesn't look like the rear window is bolted for one, but I also have a ton of detailed interior/exterior pictures of a 25 ST NC (with a different livery) from the Petit Le Mans 2017, and it had an OEM top at that point.

They may have been, I have only find one image of the car where you can see a lower frame sticking out. I wish I could find the petition to either IMSA or PWC to allow the use of alternate tops because the cost and availability of OEMs was too much. I was looking for information on CCP's hardtops when I found it years ago.

The NC OEM tops are crazy hard to find and expensive when found - and require meaningful modifications to fit the cage as I understand it . . .

I still see some pictures (not in your album) showing the Frankenstein bolts tabs missing from some of the tops through the years. Maybe it wasn't worth repairing them if they got damaged.

Not having luck finding a used HT. Three options for new HT. Treasure Coast, CCP and DG Motorsports. With the rear window and brackets, the Treasure Coast and CCP are about $1,300 shipped. The DG is about $1,500 shipped. Thoughts appreciated. Thx.
