The legendary Hard Dog roll bars are now available for the ND chassis! This bar is legal for use with NASA. Do not believe claims to the contrary.
Please note: we believe there is an excellent chance this bar will fit a 124 Spider, but we have not been able to confirm yet.
We worked with Hard Dog to give you as much overhead protection as possible. The bar is as tall as possible, but does not restrict use of the soft top or seat travel. It's also compatible with the factory windblocker and all the storage behind the seats.
The factory aluminum hoops may not protect you much, but Mazda built nice solid mounting points into the car for them. So this bar uses them to tie into the chassis, then adds two rear legs for extra strength. The bar is made of 1.75" DOM tubing with a 0.120" wall, almost overkill for such a light car. The new rear legs come with 3/16" backing plates that require six holes to be drilled in the chassis.
The bar is tall enough to touch the inner lining on the GT soft top, but not press hard against it. It fully clears the single-thickness Club top.
Includes a harness bar that also anchors the soft top latch, and retains full function of the stock seatbelts. The optional double diagonals are spread at the top to provide maximum visibility out the back. Our favorite is the black bar with double diagonals, as you see here.
Full use of the cubbys behind the seat is retained. The roll bar does not affect them at all, unlike some other designs.
Available in black powdercoat. Fitted vinyl or leather covers are an option, which include SFI-rated formed padding.
Shipping note: These bars will be drop-shipped from the manufacturer. These bars are usually kept in stock. If not, depending on where the bars are in the production process, it could take approximately 2-6 weeks for delivery. Since they're drop-shipped, the tracking number process isn't automated and could be delayed.
If you would like one shipped outside the US, please contact Hard Dog Fabrication directly.
Not compatible with the Retractable Fastback (RF).
