Mazda MX5 Miata Cabrio Shield® Frequently Asked Questions | Prestige Autotrim Products Ltd
What is the Cabrio Shield®?
It is a tailored solution to convertible top protection.
So it's a cover?
We believe it is much more than a cover. Our design team was tasked with developing a protection system for convertible tops. The brief was to provide a convertible top with protection from all aspects of weather, sun damage and any other contaminants that usually stain or damage the top when the car is parked.
So the Cabrio Shield® is better than the cheaper covers out there?
Yes but the Cabrio Shield® is more than just a simple cover. The design is unique (and often badly copied by others) and the fit is carefully tailored to each car. Much thought has gone into ensuring the Cabrio Shield® is easy to use, secure and won't damage your car's paint.
So, what's the difference?
The design is carefully thought out. The attachment system incorporates flanges that close inside the door gaps. The rear is attached under the trunk lid. The Cabrio Shield® has been carefully designed with the minimum of contact with the car's paintwork. Such contact areas are lined with a soft, microfibre cloth and soft-touch magnetic rubber strips are concealed behind the microfibre (where applicable). This has the added benefit of helping to prevent the edges buffeting against the car. The Cabrio Shield® is tailored to the convertible top with a degree of accuracy that ensures it cannot billow in the wind.
Is it secure?
The Cabrio Shield® is 100% secure. It cannot be removed without opening the doors and trunk lid. It cannot blow off in a storm and it provides enhanced security for your car's interior contents; whilst protecting the convertible top at the same time.
Will the Cabrio Shield® prolong the life of my soft top?
With regular use the Cabrio Shield will dramatically increase the life-span of your convertible top. Damage to tops primarily comes from exposure to the elements; such as sunlight. Regular use of the Cabrio Shield® will protect plastic windows from frost and sun damage, significantly reduce the natural colour-fading of convertible top fabric and the natural degradation of plastic windows. An added benefit includes protecting the interior trim from sunlight damage.
