    Body Work on Miata 

    Members…

    I had PALM BEACH COACHWORKS in West Palm Beach do work on my Audi. Minor damage and cleanup. They worked on my girlfriends Jaguar and it came out beautiful.

    I decided to bring them my Miata (love of my life … in addition to my girlfriend) to repair scratches, and dings from stones. Also needed the car buffed out to bring back the color. OMG! The car is spectacular. They removed the pin striping (I hated from day 1). See pics below. All I can say is this is the place for any restoration work on the body. They work on high end cars from dealers but will take your car.

    See you at the next meeting. Contact grandpaarnie@comcast.net if needed.

    Two Questions: mechanic and hard dog roll bar 

    Hello guys, thanks for the add! Finally, deposit down on a 2003, paying in full today…

    Two questions

    1. Any reputable mechanics in the South Miami area that one can recommend to work/are familiar with the Miata? No need now but just to have in the books for when I can’t tackle an issue.

    2. Looking to install a hard dog roll bar… eventually I want a hard top but I was wondering if with the hard top hard dog will one still be able to close the soft top? Or is the hard top roll bar strictly for hard top and soft top strictly for soft top?

    Thanks!

      The Hardtop versions are a little lower and just a bit further back. No issues with soft top. Just a little smaller to fit Hardtop.

      For a good independent shop, Mazdapros in Hollywood seems to be well-regarded among Mazda owners. A family-owned business. I have not used them for service because I have used dealer service to date, but I have met the family at one of their cruise-in events and they are nice people and Mazda enthusiasts. The patriarch, Edgar Carranza, seems to know his stuff.

      For good dealer service at fair prices, Lou Bachrodt Mazda in Coconut Creek. I hate to recommend Lou Bachrodt because the new sales managers there are terrible to deal with, but that’s sales. On the service side, I have nothing but nice things to say about the manager, Mike Kubic.

      Thanks guys for info I called Mazda Pros and taking her there on Monday for a once over and some stainless steel braided lines. Then she is off to her new home in South Miami where I hope to do a couple of track days, some Autocross, a few meets and just enjoy the weather with the top down on the weekends…

      You can close the soft top and then install the hard top. That’s how I had mine until my son needed a soft top. I gave him my soft top, and now my 99 is a dedicated coupe. I don’t know any dedicated Miata mechanics I would personally recommend, but not much goes wrong with Miatas. I do all my own work on my two older models. The 16 is still under warranty and it runs perfectly.
