heres my current struggle on the new e30,this car used to have a vinil roof on it.The previous owner thought it was possible to pull it off and get the sunroof working again(YOU CRAZY FCKR!!:D )anyways after looking at all my options,the only one i had was to weld it in and seal it...im just gonna repaint the roof and hide the huge holes on the sides with a vinil strip.The plan was not too much work on this thing,so the vinil is on and the roof is looking good,you will barely know it ever had a sunroof by the end of tommorrow..but WHAT A BITCH OF A JOB!!!!wet sanding and makeing sure its leveled off all around!!ive been working on it for 4 days!!!

10,000 years ago, a friend of mine did that to his beater. He made a hole in the roof as big as he could, riveted a sheet of plexiglass over the hole and caulked around it. Half-assed, but it was original! It gave an "aquarium" feel to the car. :P

Vinyl Roof? I might be tired but I keep picturing the entire roof covered in that tacky rubbery shit used on lincon town cars.

Is your tint sparkly?
