Re: Project remove my sunroof

You could always weld the seem solid across the back..... IMHO it looks better that way.

I did that kind of repair on a 1966 chevelle that someone put a sunroof in. It worked great i drove the crap out of it and never had any problems. The car has been gone for a few years but i would like to think it held up well. Just take lots of time welding it in as u dont want to warp the thin sheetmetal.

Re: Project remove my sunroof

Quick update: Stripped and sanded the paint off the donor top and fitted it in place. Will epoxy paint the inside once it warms up.

Re: Project remove my sunroof

Ok, so I finally got some time to finish the roof. I stripped and primed the inside of the roof, then installed the original insulation inside before buttoning it up. I ended up welding the front lip of the roof and using 3M panel adhesive on the back edge. I clamped it all together and let it sit over night. The results turned out great.

Re: Project remove my sunroof

Thanks, I only have to smooth out a small dimple in the rear of the panel. Which I should have done by this weekend.
