Default WTB: Hardtop Latches (Top Only)

I bought a hardtop today and the latches have seen better days. Looking for the top set of latches above the windshield. Good condition.

You should be aware there are two versions, they switched in 2003. The newer latches may or may not latch up to the older strikers, Mazda says not to do that as damage will eventually result to the latch. On the older latches the part that fits into the striker is like a rounded-off pyramid, while on the newer ones that piece has more of a rounded-off square kind of shape. Posting the year of the car as well as a picture of that piece of your current latches will help. I think I have my old latches somewhere, if I can find them. I'm out of town until Sunday but will look for them if you're still looking when I get back.

Why thank you Mobius. This is an NA hardtop on an NA.
