another sunroof thread

I was wondering what the difficulty of installing a manual sunroof would be. My friend has a 93 240sx and the sunroof has a handle, pops up like a spoiler, and then pops out. Could I get a salvaged roof and cut my ranger roof to fit it or anything similar?

I have seen mods like this done on other vehix and they never seal all the way so if you are ok with moisture do it otherwise I vote no

Search on www.rangerpowersports.com and JCW sells a manual sunroof unit.


I'm actually planning on possibly doing this when I'm back in Minnesota. There's a guide somewhere on RPS on how to do it and it just requires basically careful work. But I think a sunroof is hella badass and you just make sure you seal that badboy up nicely!
