Guide to the rollbar installation and instructions:
Many people who will install these rollbars do not like to read instructions, but need some general
direction on what to do. For these people, we have provided a summary of the steps (in bold)
preceding the detailed instructions.
We recommend setting aside some plastic bags or small containers to put fasteners and small parts
during disassembly. Most of these parts will be reused during final assembly, and there is nothing more
frustrating than not being able to find a part or fastener when you are almost done.
Also, there will likely be items on the car that may need adjustments, which are not specifically
mentioned in these instructions. Wiring routing and ties, connectors, rubber plugs, excessive
undercoating or caulk, or other items may need to be removed or modified to fit the rollbar in place.
WARNING: This product does not guarantee the safety of the occupant in the case of a rollover or
other vehicle accident. This rollbar has been designed and tested following the intent of the SCCA
and FIA rollbar guidelines, but has not undergone automotive industry testing. The owner assumes
the responsibility for proper mounting and padding of the rollbar. Always wear your seatbelt and
follow safe driving practices.

DISASSEMBLE AND PREPARE THE CAR
1) Jack up the car and support with heavy jackstands.
· Following the manufacturer’s instructions, raise the entire car and
support at the four recommended lift points. Also remove the rear
wheels. Note: Do not lift only one side or one end!!! Uneven
support of the car will cause the chassis to twist, and the rollbar
will not fit properly.
2) Remove the seats (and windscreen).
· Removal of the seats is optional, but allows easier access to the
work area. DO NOT remove the seats or seat belt brackets in ‘94-
’97 cars – slide seats all the way forward for these cars.
· Remove the 4 (metric) bolts from the base of each seat using a
14mm wrench or socket and remove the seats from the car.
· If your car has headrest speakers, remember to disconnect the
wiring harness plug under the seats.
3) Remove the carpeting (with the top up).
· Using a small crow bar, claw hammer, or button removal tool,
carefully pry the plastic buttons from the carpet at the front edge of
the package tray.
· With the top partially raised, roll or fold the horizontal package tray
carpet back under the convertible top.
· Remove the carpet (and padding) from the vertical wall behind the
seats.
4) Remove the plastic side panels.
· Remove the top plastic cover over the seat belt tower bolts by
pulling upwards.
· Remove the boot snaps with a phillips screwdriver and remove
any other fasteners from the plastic panels.
· Remove the windscreen, if installed.
· There is a small rectangular plastic piece that connects the plastic
panel behind the seat belt tower. Carefully use a screwdriver to
pry this out toward the rear of the car.
· A metal top corner connector and weather stripping must be
removed from each side.
· Remove any remaining screws from the plastic side panels and remove both plastic panels
by sliding them forward over the seat belt bolt.
5) Remove the metal package tray cover.
· Remove the bolts from the perimeter of the cover using a 10mm
socket and set the tray aside.
· This will reveal the flat areas on each side of the fuel tank where
the rear mounting feet will be bolted. Anything in these areas
(insulation pads, security system, rubber plugs) should be moved
so that these areas are clear.
6) Put the convertible top down.
· You may want to cover the rear window area with a towel or cloth
to protect it during rollbar installation.
7) Remove the cockpit brace (’94 – ’97).
· Remove the cockpit brace end covers, loosen the bolts and remove the brace.
WARNING: This product does not guarantee the safety of the occupant in the case of a rollover or
other vehicle accident. This rollbar has been designed and tested following the intent of the SCCA
and FIA rollbar guidelines, but has not undergone automotive industry testing. The owner assumes
the responsibility for proper mounting and padding of the rollbar. Always wear your seatbelt and
follow safe driving practices.
0507 Boss Frog Installation Instructions – Copyright 2007 – US Patent #7,032,927 5
8) Remove seat belt tower bolts.
· Remove the top bolts holding the seat belt guides using a 17mm or
5/8” wrench or socket.
· On the front side of the seat belt towers underneath the seat belt
reels is a bolt that secures the reels in place. Remove the bolt from
each side using a 17mm or 5/8” open-end wrench.
9) Remove the ECU (if installed) and cut off top stud.
· If an ECU is installed behind the passenger seat, the top bolt must
be removed. Remove the nut, then bend the stud back and forth
with a pliers until it snaps off.
10) Tilt the Seatbelt Reel.
· In order to make the seatbelts retract better, the seatbelt reel can
be repositioned slightly for better alignment with the guide.
· With the lower bolt loosely installed and the top bolt removed, tilt
the top of the reel assembly towards the inside of the car. Mark and
drill a new hole for the metal tang so the reel is tilted as far as
possible inside the housing (about 5/8”).
· Drill and tap a new hole for the top bolt, or use an oversize washer
to hold the seatbelt reel in its new position.
11) Remove the plastic splash panels from the front of the inner rear
fenders.
· Remove the small bolts with a 10mm socket (or plastic fasteners
with a phillips screwdriver) and remove the plastic panels.
12) Clean the area where the saddle feet will mount.
· The corner area of floor where the driveline tunnel and the vertical
wall behind the seats meets is where the saddle feet must be
mounted. Typically this area has excess body caulk which must be
removed.
· Pull back the floor carpet to reveal this area, and using a putty
knife, scrape the floor area (about 4” square) so that it is flat.
· Make horizontal slits in the carpet on both sides of the tunnel, just
above the floor. Start at the back of the carpet and cut horizontally
forward about 3-1/2” long. This will allow the saddle feet to sit
directly on the metal floor with the carpet still in place against the
tunnel and floor.
13)Trim the back wall carpet insulation.
· Lay the carpet from the vertical wall behind the seats on a flat
surface with the insulation facing up.
· Lay the saddle assembly over the center section of the carpet,
approximately in the position it will be installed (feet aligned with
the lower edge of the carpet).
· If the insulation overlaps the saddle legs, it should be trimmed and
removed, so the saddle can lay flat on top of the carpet when
installed. Mark and cut the insulation with a knife or tin snips and
remove it. Re-install the carpet on the vertical wall behind the
seats.
WARNING: This product does not guarantee the safety of the occupant in the case of a rollover or
other vehicle accident. This rollbar has been designed and tested following the intent of the SCCA
and FIA rollbar guidelines, but has not undergone automotive industry testing. The owner assumes
the responsibility for proper mounting and padding of the rollbar. Always wear your seatbelt and
follow safe driving practices.
0507 Boss Frog Installation Instructions – Copyright 2007 – US Patent #7,032,927 6
INSTALL THE ROLLBAR
14) Install the Saddle.
· With the floor, tunnel, and back wall carpet in place, test fit the
saddle. The back of the saddle assembly should fit tight against
the back wall (with carpet installed), centered over the tunnel,
and the feet should be relatively flat against the floor.
· Make any adjustments required to get a good fit. Do not drill or
bolt the assembly at this time.
· ’94 –’97 Miatas have extra bolts attaching a horizontal seat belt
bracket into the tunnel near the back wall. The saddle is designed
to fit over these brackets and bolts without removing them. The procedure for installing the
saddle is slightly different for these models;
· Hold the saddle vertically in position over the tunnel and push down, until the front edge
of the feet are directly on the metal floor (with carpet pulled back) and close to the back
wall.
· Push the top of the saddle rearward toward the back wall while holding the saddle feet in
position, until the large saddle holes "snap" over the seat belt brackets.
15) Fit the rollbars into position.
· Be very careful not to cut or damage the wiring harnesses during installation of the rollbar.
· Install one hoop at a time by carefully guiding the rear foot into position on the flat steel
areas on each side of the fuel tank.
· The seatbelts should be inside the rollbars on both sides.
· There may be a rubber plug in this foot area, which should be removed (the resulting hole
will sometimes align with the front hole on the rear foot). If there are other electrical plugs or
hardware that obstruct the foot location, carefully move these items.
· If you have ABS brakes, the rear foot may interfere with the wiring location. If so, disconnect
the wiring harness (behind the seat) and pull the wires into the inner fender area. Re-route
the wires after the installation is complete.
· The two front feet should now begin to line up with the lower bolt hole at the base of the seat
belt tower, and the top of the saddle.
· Fit the second hoop into position.
16) Bolt the rollbars into position.
· When the front feet appear to be properly aligned, start the 7/16 x
1.25” bolts (fine thread) with one of the existing flat washers
through the front foot of the rollbar and into the threaded holes at
the base of each seat belt tower, using a 5/8” open end wrench
(do not tighten). The assembly sequence is; bolt, washer, front
foot, seat belt reel, and into the threaded hole. It is not necessary
to reinstall any of the thick washers which may have originally
been behind the seat belt reels.
· Install the trim cap washer on the 7/16” x 3” bolt (except for
stainless installations), then a 7/16” flat washer, and insert through
the top mount plates of the rollbar and the 1-7/8” long spacer tube, into the threaded holes at
the top of the seat belt towers. Important note: This top bolt does not always align perfectly
with the threaded hole due to variations in seat belt tower dimensions and rear foot
clearance. You may need to rock each rollbar or apply pressure on the hoop to get the bolt
started. We recommend recruiting a friend to help position the bar. An alternate method is
to start the upper 3” bolt first, then the lower 1.25” bolt. If you cannot get the bolt(s) started,
it sometimes helps to twist the car slightly by raising or lowering one corner of the car. In
rare cases, the hole on the top mount plate can be enlarged slightly using a rat-tail file to
allow proper fit.
WARNING: This product does not guarantee the safety of the occupant in the case of a rollover or
other vehicle accident. This rollbar has been designed and tested following the intent of the SCCA
and FIA rollbar guidelines, but has not undergone automotive industry testing. The owner assumes
the responsibility for proper mounting and padding of the rollbar. Always wear your seatbelt and
follow safe driving practices.
0507 Boss Frog Installation Instructions – Copyright 2007 – US Patent #7,032,927 7
· Using a punch or screwdriver to align the saddle holes, install the
four 3/8” x 1” bolts with trim rings to attach the saddle and the inside
feet together.
· After all fasteners are started, recheck to see that all wires are clear
and the seatbelts are inside the rollbar, then tighten all the bolts to
approximately 45 ft lbs using 5/8” and 9/16” wrenches.
· Hold the saddle centered in position with the back of the legs as
tight as possible to the vertical wall behind the seats. Drill (4) 3/8”
holes through the floor, using the saddle feet as guides (check to be sure there is no wires
or obstructions underneath this area).
· Insert 3/8” x 1.5” bolts through the holes, and attach the saddle foot backer plates (square
with two holes) underneath the car using 3/8” washers, lock washers and nuts.
· Tighten the saddle foot bolts to approximately 45 ft lbs using 9/16” wrenches.
· Install the plastic trim caps on the saddle and seat belt tower bolts. For stainless
installations, install the plastic retainers over the bolt heads, then push the chrome caps over
the retainers. Note that these parts will not easily come off once installed.
17) Drill the front foot support holes and install backer plates.
· With a 3/8” drill bit, drill through the holes in the front foot supports
(2 each side).
· Install the 3/8” x 1.5” bolts from the front, then attach the front foot
support backer plates from inside the fender well with the supplied
washers, lockwashers, and nuts. The fastener sequence is
generally bolt, finished part, chassis, backer plate, flat washer, lock
washer, and nut. Tighten the nuts to 50 ft lbs each using 9/16”
wrenches.
18) Drill the rear mounting foot holes and install the backer plates.
· Using the long drill bit, drill down through the three mounting holes
in each of the rear mounting feet. The space is tight here, but it
can be done.
· If you can’t drill all three holes from the top, then drill the front two
holes, bolt in the backer plate from underneath, and drill the third
hole from below. It may help to hold the convertible top partially
open.
· Using the 3/8” drill bit from underneath the car, drill up through the
new holes. Spend a few extra minutes making sure these holes
are reamed out well, to give as much bolt clearance as possible.
· Insert the 3/8” x 1.5” bolts from the top. Note that it may be easier to access the rear bolts
from the trunk compartment. Test fit the backer plates from underneath the car. If the bolts
are too close to the frame, the backer plate can be trimmed or modified for a better fit. Bolt
in the backer plates using the 3/8” x 1.5” bolts, washers, lockwashers, nuts, and 9/16”
wrenches, and tighten the nuts to 45 ft lbs each. The fastener sequence is generally bolt,
rollbar, chassis, backer plate, flat washer, lock washer, and nut. NOTE: If you have a fuel
vent hose attached in this area, it needs to be unclipped and relocated to allow the backer
plate to fit.
WARNING: This product does not guarantee the safety of the occupant in the case of a rollover or
other vehicle accident. This rollbar has been designed and tested following the intent of the SCCA
and FIA rollbar guidelines, but has not undergone automotive industry testing. The owner assumes

follow safe driving practices.
0507 Boss Frog Installation Instructions – Copyright 2007 – US Patent #7,032,927 8
RE-ASSEMBLE THE CAR
19) Re-install the fender liners and wheels.
· We suggest coating the installed backer plates with some
undercoating spray (underneath the car) to seal up the area and
reduce road noise.
· Re-install the fender liners and carefully lower the car from the
jackstands.
20) Attach the seat belt guides.
· A pair of Boss Frog Seatbelt Adapters has been included with your
rollbar. These will generally allow the seatbelt to retract more
smoothly than the stock guides. However, you have the option of
re-installing the stock seatbelt guides, or cutting the stock guides off
and installing the Seatbelt Adapters. Choose one option from the
following;
If re-installing the stock seatbelt guides:
· Install the seat belt guide as shown the illustration, including the ½”
nylon bushings and washers as shown (no trim ring for stainless).
· Tighten the 3/8” x 1” GRD 8 bolts using 9/16” wrenches to 50 ft lbs
and install the plastic trim caps.
· Note: Because the angle of the seat belt guide is different that the
factory installation, it is normal for the belts to retract slower than
before the rollbar was installed.
If installing the seatbelt adapters:
· Remove the seatbelt anchor bolt near the floor of the vehicle
using a 5/8” wrench.
· Position the hole toward the rear of the car, with the fat end
toward the inside of the car (driver’s side shown).
· Slide the adapter up to the male end of the buckle and
manipulate the buckle through the adapter’s slot. This may
require some effort, but the buckle must be able to fit through
the slot. If it doesn’t fit through, DO NOT proceed further*.
WARNING: This product does not guarantee the safety of the occupant in the case of a rollover or
other vehicle accident. This rollbar has been designed and tested following the intent of the SCCA
and FIA rollbar guidelines, but has not undergone automotive industry testing. The owner assumes
the responsibility for proper mounting and padding of the rollbar. Always wear your seatbelt and
follow safe driving practices.
0507 Boss Frog Installation Instructions – Copyright 2007 – US Patent #7,032,927 9
· Unbolt the stock seatbelt guide from the rollbar tab using a
9/16” wrench.
· Carefully cut through the stock seatbelt guide using a
hacksaw, jigsaw, or rotary cutoff tool and remove it from the
seatbelt. Be very careful not to cut, burn, or damage
the seatbelt.
· Install the new seatbelt adapter into place on top of the
rollbar tab, in the same position as the stock guide. Use
the existing 3/8” grade 8 fasteners originally supplied with
the rollbar (bushings are not required). Re-install the
plastic bolt cap and flange if desired.
· Reinstall the seatbelt anchor end using the stock seatbelt
anchor bolt.
Re-install package tray.
· The metal package tray must be cut in half to re-install. This will not
effect the performance or appearance of the finished installation.
· Measure and mark the approximate centerline of the package tray
and cut both the metal tray and insulation material with a metal shear
or tin snips. Do not cut through any bolt holes.
· The tray must be notched to allow re-installation – use the package
tray template provided, and cut the sheet metal with tin snips or a
jigsaw. Warning: the package tray edges are sharp, and will damage
the paint if allowed to contact the rollbar tubes. One option is to apply
electrical or duct tape over these sharp edges to prevent injury to
fingers or paint.
· Carefully guide each half of the package tray into position and attach
with the original 10mm bolts.
21) Re-install carpet.
· With the top partially raised, lay the package tray carpet as flat as possible behind the
rollbars. Mark where the carpet meets the base of the rear hoop braces, and carefully cut a
slot in the carpet toward the sides of the package tray.
· Mark and cut the carpet around the tubes – careful, this will show if you make the holes too
big. Cut the hole small at first, and enlarge until it just fits around the tubes.
· Use some duct or carpet tape underneath the carpet to hold the trimmed edges together,
and re-install all the plastic buttons.
22) Re-install Brace Bar (’94 – ’97).
WARNING: This product does not guarantee the safety of the occupant in the case of a rollover or
other vehicle accident. This rollbar has been designed and tested following the intent of the SCCA
and FIA rollbar guidelines, but has not undergone automotive industry testing. The owner assumes
the responsibility for proper mounting and padding of the rollbar. Always wear your seatbelt and
follow safe driving practices.
0507 Boss Frog Installation Instructions – Copyright 2007 – US Patent #7,032,927 10
· The brace bar may be re-installed if desired.
23) Re-install seats.
· Re-install the seats and plug in the headrest speakers (if installed).
· Even though you are not completely done with the installation, we recommend that you take
a break and go for a test drive. Careful, heads will turn to look at the new addition to your
car.
24) Fit plastic trim panels.
· Back to work.
· The plastic trim panels are not difficult to modify, but they require some time and patience to
do it properly. Cutting templates are provided, but only give an idea of what your panels will
look like when they are completely trimmed.
· The easiest way to explain the process is that you will be cutting each plastic panel in half
vertically. To start, cut the panel in half, following the inside corner of the panel. We
suggest using an aviation shears or tin snips for this job. When you are done trimming, a
flat file will help straighten the lines and make them look professional.
· Fit the inside half of the panel into position, noting that it is too wide to fit over the rollbar leg.
While holding the panel roughly in position, make a mark at the top edge at the desired
width. Generally it will be about 1” to 1-1/4” from the formed corner where you cut the panel
in half. Draw a vertical line down the panel, and cut off less than your mark indicates.
Test fit again, trimming toward the desired line until the panel lays flat.
· Fit the outside half roughly in position. Usually, the front foot of the rollbar interferes with the
panel. Cut a notch in the panel for this front foot to fit through. Warning – do not cut
anything else from this half until the front foot notch is complete. Often, nothing else
needs to be cut for the panel to fit along the edge of the rollbar. After the outside panel fits,
the top needs to be trimmed around the rollbar hoop to allow the horizontal surfaces of the
two halves to meet at the rear.
· You will need to cut the end off the seat belt trim rings and elongate the hole to make it fit
properly. Again, use a file to make the final edge straight and smooth.
· Reinstall all trim rings and panels. Automotive trim edging can be used to “fix” any cutting
errors you might make, or to make the install more professional looking.
· The windscreen on M2’s can be made to fit around the rollbars, but most people prefer to
leave it out, or to use a custom acrylic windscreen.
25) Boot Cover.
· The boot cover no longer fits properly. Some people continue to use it this way, some
discontinue using it, and some modify it to fit – this is your choice.
· If you choose to modify the boot, it can be done by ripping the corner seams and having it
re-sewn to fit around the bars. We recommend taking it to an upholstery shop for advice.
26) Rollbar Padding.
· Many different types of rollbar padding can be purchased from a variety of sources. Custom
SFI padding and vinyl covers are available through Boss Frog retailers.
· Depending on the normal seat adjustment and height of the driver, padding may be
needed to prevent injury in case of an accident.
· The purchase and installation of proper padding on the rollbar is the responsibility of the
owner.
27) Enjoy your new rollbar. Thanks for buying Boss Frog.
