I'm contemplating fitting a sun roof to the rear of my wagon above the the cargo/boot area. Just wondering if anyone knows off there head if it's possible or if there's support beams or soemthing in the way?
When I was fitting the roof screen I noticed that the fronts fine, but that are obvious since there was a factory option...

when a sunroof is installed in a sedan, that support is removed anyway, the sunroof has braces that support the roof.
the roof is super flimsy without it though.

Well the sun roofs are only $200 and there already tinted (and that automotive safety glass), coems with the seals and all that, when closed wouldn't be any different to having a peice of glass there...
