Assuming the hardtop is staying on then the best we can offer is the Nasa with petty bar. I think we have one in stock in black (silver would take a few weeks).

Thanks for the response...

I'm not a big fan of the petty bar intruding on the cabin space, and the drilling aspect kinda scares me a bit also for the floor mounting.

For the standard 1.75 NASA version bar do you have them in stock ?

I'm undecided on Black or Silver.

I will give you a call tmrw if that is ok...any best time to call so that I can talk with you ?

Yes, standard NASA spec bar in stock currently. Obviously no passenger with the Petty bar. Note you can put the Petty bar in for events and take it out if you plan a passenger. Phones most busy morning and noontime....and lighter late in the day.

So all of the AWR roll bars are made to the NASA 1.75 spec? Including the ones that come with with the Petty bar?

Thanks Brian for the rollbar...

I spent Sat installing it...

Trimming the plastic is probably the most time consuming part of the process, otherwise it is relatively straight forward...

Fit and finish was very good...

Make sure people to purchase in advance the extra four bolts needed, plus get washers for them also...
I was able to get the bolts at my local OSH store, M8x1.25x16mm fitted perfectly...washers are needed with them due to the bolt head size...

All I'm waiting on now is for the plastic trim cap to be sent out to me, Brian is getting a new set made which will fit correctly on the larger 1.75 NASA bars, so I'm looking forward to completing this project when it arrives to me...

I took a few hundred pics of the install, but will just post a few here...I'll post some more over on Miata.net later in the week...

A basic before and after...

Under the softtop, has plenty of room, just be careful when opening/closing not to let the latch hit the top of the bar or it will scratch it...
Image

Image

Will look much cleaner when I get the plastic cap...
Image

Image

Under my hardtop, I'm very happy with the silver finish on the rollbar...

Image

Hardtop has a bit less room to the rollbar, but it fits just fine...
Maybe 1/2 inch clearance approx...
