Vinyl Hood, Budget with PVC Window, MX5 Mk1

SKU: BAS1011

Our budget MK1 hood is made from top quality OEM (original equipment manufacturer) material. This design does not have a zip for the rear window which means that the rear window is folded whenever you lower the roof. 

This in itself is not a probelm but we would recommend that the hood is not lowered in extremely cold conditions as there is the potential of damage to the rear window.

Ideal hood for the budget conscious or if you are looking to smarten up the exterior at a bargain price.

Fit, finish and quality are excellent

Free Fitting On This Hood!

Book your car in with us at our workshops in Portsmouth and we will fit your hood for you absolutely free of charge, saving you £99.95 in labour! Call us on 02392 644588 to book NOW!
(Please Note: Free fitting applies to the labour charge only. The hood and any other parts required to fit the hood must be paid for in full on the day).

Fits all Mk1 models 1989>1998 available in black only

I bought this last May to replace the torn and cracked original on my 1991 Eunos. I had delayed for a long time because of worrying it would prove difficult to fit and need garaging while I did it. I needn't have worried. If you are used to working with your hands and basic tools, it's straightforward. I completed mine in four hours even with two delays which you can avoid as I'll share them.Do not ignore the advice to stuff a cloth into the internal drain holes. I ignored it and spent 20 minutes trying to coax out a nut from beneath with a coat hanger.Use a cordless drill with a small socket to release the bar in the rear parcel shelf; this will greatly speed things as it's very fiddly with a spanner!Don't bother with rivets in the bottom of the door posts, they are not needed. Just make sure you fold the corner correctly (examine the old one as you remove it). The only rivet I needed was to secure the tension wire (incidentally, you have to use the wire from your old roof, a replacement is not included).My longest delay was closing the roof, it is a very tight fit. It was 20 degrees C when I did mine but it's too tight even at that temperature to close. After struggling for half an hour I put an electric fan heater on inside the car for 10 minutes and it closed easily. Leave it closed for a week and it's perfect thereafter.I've now had it on 10 months without garaging and it's still perfect, no leaks and no draughts. If you use a cordless driver and a heater as recommended, it can be done in three hours so don't be put off. Excellent value for money.

My old hood was not the original on the car, so I found that this budget BAS hood has stronger fastenings then the old £450 BAS international hood does, forget the rivets that are supplied, fix the hood underneath on the metal seal holders. I've had mine in all weathers and no leaks, (my opinion anyway). Taking the roof/hood off the car makes it far easier. Just make sure you clean the rain rail and drains before fitting new hood, prolong the life even more.Taking my time and having no experience, I had the job done in four hours. I rang my local Mazda garage and they had to confirm whether they even fitted hoods for an MX5! They were going to charge me £300 labour for fitting it and they would keep the car overnight. Even though it is a budget hood it is a very good overall hood, which does fit, its strong and there are no creases.So with basic engineering skills for it being the cheapest roof on this site, I've found the overall quality and fitting is more worthwhile than the £450 mohair from BAS International.P.S. fantastic site and all round service

I was a bit worried about fitting this hood as it's the budget version, but the quality was good, and very east to fit, mind you I would fit 10 of these instead of window winder cables. Great service from M5PARTS.COM don't know how they do it. Now cant wait to Saturday morning when my lowering springs turn up and get my hands dirty again.

Delivery Information - MX5 Parts

We understand that its really important for you to receive your goods in a timely fashion and for a competitive price. To ensure that we can deliver this we have developed a strategic partnership with both the Royal Mail and our courier partner, Think Worldwide.

At the present time, we only offer one delivery option ‘our carrier’. We will dispatch your goods with the most suitable carrier, for main land UK deliveries this is normally Royal Mail 1st class for packages weighing under 2kg and Think Worldwide for those that are over.

Our delivery charges are based on the weight of the consignment and the destination address. For UK mainland deliveries they start at £2.95 for a package weighing under 200g and rise to a MAXIMUM of £9.95 for a package weighing 2kg or over (EXCEPT very large bulky items that have an additional shipping surcharge added). The exact delivery cost will be clearly displayed at checkout.

Delivery times are estimated at 1-3 working days by Royal Mail, and 1-2 working days by Think Worldwide for mainland UK addresses. If you order before 3pm, Monday to Friday, we will dispatch the same day. If you order after 3pm, we will try to dispatch the same day, but if we cant it will be the next working day. Items ordered after 3pm Friday or over a weekend will be dispatched Monday. Items dispatched on Friday are for delivery the following week. Items ordered over a Bank Holiday will be dispatched the next working day. MX5parts is constantly updated to keep pace with changes in our stock but demand is high and we occasionally run out of popular items. If we have run out of stock and can’t dispatch your order the next working day, we’ll email or phone you with a revised dispatch date. You can then either accept the revised dispatch date or cancel the order, as you wish. Please note, shipping times are an estimate, and can not be guaranteed. Please note that during special offer periods, dispatch of your order may be delayed slightly due to high a volume of orders.

A signature is required for ALL orders delivered by Think Worldwide. Someone must be at your delivery address to sign for your parcel between 8am and 6pm on a working day. Please send it somewhere it can be reliably signed for, like your place of work, a neighbour, or perhaps your grans. We can (but we don’t like to) ask the courier to leave your parcel without a signature. If we do this, it will be YOUR responsibility if the parcel is lost or damaged. If you want it left, you need to give us your express instructions in the ‘additional information’ box at the end of the checkout process. It would be helpful if you could also indicate exactly where the package should be left.

If you need to change your delivery address, for any packages that have been dispatched with Think Worldwide, there will be an additional charge of £9.95 if the package has already been dispatched.

Please remember, even with Royal Mail deliveries, that any items which are too large to fit through your letter box will need someone to be available to receive the delivery. If the item cannot be delivered, you will be carded and given the option of either a re-delivery or you can collect your parcel from your local post office depot.

Orders sent to countries outside the UK will be sent VAT free, however please note that on all international shipments, the recipient is responsible for any local VAT, import duty and other clearance fees that may be charged.

Our Guarantee - MX5 Parts

We guarantee that you’ll be satisfied with mx5parts!

We are an independant, family company, run by a dedicated team. We aim to be the kind of company that we’d like to deal with if we were you. You have our absolute commitment as fellow MX-5 owners, car nuts, internet users and hard-working people that you’ll be satisfied with mx5parts. If you’re not, let us know and we’ll sort it out!

We guarantee “always fair prices”

MX5parts maintains an everyday savings pricing policy. We watch other retailers closely and maintain competitive pricing. The internet being the beast it is means that any Tom, Dick or Henrietta can set up a website in their back room and charge bargain basement/off the back of a lorry (guv) prices. Often they will have no stock, no returns policy, questionable security, no guarantees and of course poor customer service. MX5parts strives to be open and honest, so we will never inflate our prices to set up an artificial ‘sale’ (a common – and illegal – retail practice).

It is inevitable in an open market like the internet that there will be some individuals selling some items cheaper than we do, and some selling them for more than we do, just as in the high street. We take great pride in offering a fast, efficient, friendly and secure shopping experience, with great products at fair prices. We encourage our customers to shop around, but are very pleased to welcome them back again and again.

We guarantee to despatch your order when we say we will

If you order before 3pm, Monday to Friday and we have your items in stock , we’ll despatch the same day . If you order after 3pm, we’ll still try to despatch that day but, if we can’t, we’ll despatch the following day. Items ordered after 3pm Friday or over a weekend will be despatched Monday. Items despatched on Friday are for delivery the following week. Items ordered over a Bank Holiday will be despatched the next working day. MX5parts is constantly updated to keep pace with changes in our stock but demand is high and we occasionally run out of popular items. If we have run out of stock and can’t despatch your order the next working day, we’ll email or phone you with a revised despatch date. You can then either accept the revised dispatch date or cancel the order, as you wish. Please note that during special offer periods, dispatch of your order may be delayed slightly due to high a volume of orders.

We guarantee to replace any goods which aren’t suitable

We guarantee to accept back any goods that you do not want, are not suitable, have changed your mind about, infact, for ANY reason, provided the goods reach us within 30 days of dispatch from us, in their original condition and packaging. Please tell us why you are returning the items, just for our records. The original purchase price of the goods will be refunded on to the card that was used for their purchase. Sorry, but we can not refund the carriage costs.

We guarantee to sort out any problem with your order

Just contact us if you have any problems with an order from mx5parts. We’ll tell you exactly what steps we’re going to take to rectify the problem.

We guarantee full warranty support on all items

Just contact us if you have a warranty problem. All goods supplied by mx5parts are from official sources and are covered by the normal manufacturers warranty.

We guarantee that we will only charge your credit/switch card when your goods are dispatched

This is your right under UK law and, if we do anything else, it’s illegal!

(Please note: This doesn’t apply however if you have chosen to pay via PayPal. Due to the way PayPal works, you are effectively sending the money to us rather than us asking for it so in this instance we will have received payment at the time the order was placed and not when it is ready for dispatch).

We guarantee that we won’t pass your email details on to anyone else

Absolutely not. All your details are treated as strictly confidential. We’re internet users, too, and we know how annoying unsolicited email can be. We wouldn’t risk annoying you by being the cause of it.

We guarantee that shopping with us is safe
