I purchased this hood over the budget version and was pleased with the quality, it arrived next day. I obtained the fitting instructions off of the Miata website. Basically the hood change is simple but a little fiddly, I pulled the seats forward and reclined them, once the rear carpet is out the ten or so bolts around the rear shelf are simple to remove, I got fed up with trying to remove the B post clips and ended up taking the hood frame off which I would recommend as it is only six bolts it so much quicker and you can produce a neater finish on these dreaded clips and screws before you put the frame back on the car.
My recommendations would be to take loads of photos as you disassemble, I thought I would remember but didn’t and ended up putting one tension cable on upside down and couldn’t remember which way up several things went. If you are like me you will want to clean and spray everything satin black so leave the job for when you have a couple of days off of work.
