some may know this but I didn't and was glad I asked my service rep

at Gunther during a routine service Thursday

These independents work under the blue canopy in back of the service

department - call any given one to check what days they are there, and

I am sure they work elsewhere also.

Dent doctor was able to take my car w/o an appointment that day while

Hi, I'm somewhat new to the region and was seeking some advice.  I've been using my dad's Miata ('99) and the rain rail needs to be replaced.  I took it to the Mazda dealer and he said it would be at least $1,000 to replace the rail.  I thought that was kind of high considering the posts I've read said it is fairly simple.  Does anyone have any advice on replacing the rain rail?  Or do you have a go-to person?  I would like to get it fixed sooner because the poor trunk is taking a beating.

Rain rails are very delicate. Even a slight bend will cause your soft top to leak. It's not impossible, you just need to know what you're doing. Also, try going to an upholstery place that specializes on soft tops for a quote on replacing the rain rails. Most likely the price will be much cheaper than the dealer. For 1000$ consider buying yourself a hardtop instead!
