It's just Coroplast (corrugated plastic)... home made construction. You can get it at places like Home Depot or sign shops.

Same construction technique as the one I just stuck on my 2000 Metro:

I am wondering what your Miata MPG is driving it around 65MPH?
No idea! I didn't get around to doing a speed vs. MPG graph for the car this summer. If I had to guess, I'd say around 35 mpg @ 65 mph with the mods that are currently on the car.

Honda mods: Ecomodding my $800 Honda Fit 5-speed beater
Mitsu mods: 70 MPG in my ecomodded, dirt cheap, 3-cylinder Mirage.
