roll bar in convertible

Did anybody see, try or have installed a Miata roll bar in a RX-7 convertible?
does it fit? if so, has anybody some pics?
thanks for your time and patience.

I don't think it would fit.

According to some memebers, here,,the 2nd gen verts come with roll bars, built into the top, unless of course u want it for looks.

With the top up, it does help with rigidity & handling. But it's in no way a roll bar.

I've seen these too in person, but I'd want it "bent" to match the body lines... not square like this:

thier was a guy on ebay selling miata sytle bars for a 2nd gen vert. but yes they were for looks only and if you ever rolled it would probably be the thing that kills you. I am getting the Kirk bar and once I have it installed I might make some changes to it once I see how much it affects the targa top going up and down.

The Kirk Racing roll bar install reduces the rearward seat travel by about 2 inches and appears to affect the seat back recline. So if you are tall, you might consider if you want to sacrifice the 2 inches.
