Sunroof Model OHC

Alright I cannot seem to find any info about the model no one here seems to use. I remember seeing information on iti before but cannot seem to find it now.

Just curious if anyone has used it or if there are any problems with using it. I have some ideas for it, but I currently have the garage door model, but it does not look like I will be able to use it for what I wanted to.

Thanks Trent.

Do you recollect what the problem was with them vs. the garage door model? Besides the wiring being different.

Hmm. Well hopefully it isn't to different to vary from Grigg's instructions.

the sunroof model uses a hook type bracket to hold the back of the console up. just a little trickier to cut the hole so the hook thing will hold it up.when i installed mine i just took a peice of metal and put it up under my headliner and screwed screws into it.
