Recommended Posts

been busy cutting out my sunroof roof skin for last 10 hrs to take new roofskin which i had from kevin abbot thanks again kev,

cut away all frame work on donar roof so i ended up with just the skin after all the cutting and fettling it now fits like a glove,

just needs welding up going to try to post some pics for you to see how i did it.

no need to brace car to stop any mid point sagging

this was a very easy job to do

i only removed the skin off my car leaving other two skins intact and the donor roof i removed the two inner skins and im left with only the skin then this was offered up to the existing car and spot welded all round and its a perfect fit so NO cutting through the pillars
