no, my brother welded some bits of his one up after the windscreen cracked though, and I have seen a few rot through around where the sunroof frame is spot welded on.

Evening. As Gnrlee said I'm in the process of prepping a roof skin for my swap.

I bought a roof off someone and got them to chop it mid pillar:


There are 80 spot welds, 8 blobs of adhesive and 2 braze welded lines on the rear fold section.

20 spot welds on the front lip.

10 spot welds down each side and in the gutter channel:


Then 40 spot welds on the rear lip. The 2 weld lines are on the section where the roof panels folds down and are tricky to cut without damaging the panel:


You will have to angle grind the inner webbing of the roof to get to the areas where adhesive is used. I the used a blow torch to heat the glue just enough to melt it so it seperates. The tape on the roof is where the adhesive was used but just run something thin between the roofskin to feel where adhesive is used on your donor roof.


I've got a bit of rot to sort out on my panel though:


Good luck mate, it's a tough job and took a good 5/6hrs to do.

Thanks Mate that's very helpful, i have found a non rusty sunroof roof i intend to use but i guess the job will be the same. When you cut the roof out of your own car do you intend to brace the shell to keep it rigid? Thanks again

You won't need to brace it as the inner webbing is 3 skins thick and that will be all still intact. Infact there is a OEM brace bar that is bolted across the middle of the roof skin (where that big long bond line is in the photo) can't remember if there is one on a sunroof skin though. Guess I'll find out when it hack my sunroof skin off.
