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 or polished stainless steel. That's right, real stainless and not a cheesy chrome plating that can cause strength problems. Fitted vinyl or leather covers are also an option, which include SFI-rated formed padding.
Will be drop-shipped from the manufacturer. Depending on inventory levels, it may take a couple of weeks to ship. Stainless steel bars will ship in 4-6 weeks. Please plan accordingly!
Not compatible with the Retractable Fastback.
