  • Sunroof help!

    Carbon plug or sheetmetal welded in. I think the lexan job looks ugly personally.

    Sunroof help!

    What would you guys do? My 96 had an aftermarket sunroof installed by the previous owner. It doesnt leak but it also does not work It also looks like crap as the control panel broke off and there is just a big hole in the headliner where it was. I want it gone. How would you guys do it? This is still street car/weekend racer. -Sheetmetal? -Carbon fiber plug? -Lexan? -Let it be?

      I've gotta plug my sunroof too, although it'll probably just be sheetmetal filled. My POS aftermarket sunroof leaks like crazy, and the carpet is all moldy now Who puts aftermarket sunroofs in perfectly good SE model cars?

        I plugged (custom plastic piece) the one in my sentra and left the headliner out... great for headroom, but I did have to reseal it after every track day due to flex and the silicone seperating. The only reason I liked this was when I sold the car I was able to get the sunroof back into the car in a evening. I'd vote for Richards method just for the off chance a rollover occurs on track.

          Buy a sheet of aluminum, drill some holes in the roof, lay down a bead of sealant, and rivet that bad boy on there. (Guess where I got that idea...) Or buy a Kognition dry cf delete panel and adhere it with 3M's flexible high-strength epoxy.

            Here's what I did: 1. Sell car with sunroof 2. Buy car without sunroof It gets tricky because you have to own both cars for a while while you swap parts between them, unless you haven't really modded the sunroof car yet. But you get the idea

              Why not just cut out the sunroof completely from roof and weld in some aluminum sheetmetal?... That's what I'm thinking I'll do down the line.. I have a sunroof hatch as well...

                How will you weld aluminum to steel?
