    Re: CONVERTIBLE HARD TOP

    I am going to use 1997 Mazda Miata latches at the front end of my top. I have not decided to stay with the targa or go full convertible but either way the Miata latches look really good and would fit in well.

    Good Luck

    Re: CONVERTIBLE HARD TOP

    I want to build a N* GT roadster and would like to put a hard top on it also, just using a tonneau cover and not running it during the rainy season. I had a hard top for my TR7 and it worked out great. I never put the soft top up. If any of you are going that way or making something that I could buy, I would sure be interested. My TR7 top was covered in material that made it look like a soft top. I would also be interested in a chop top version.
