are you getting an aftermarket one or the same ones that are put on Fords?

EDIT: Forgot to add. If you are getting a Hollandia (sp?) sunroof installed you just have to get the roof cut where the stock one would sit (has to be a good cut) and it pretty much would just bolt in. Run the wires and also the draining hoses (4 hoses...one on each corner)...pretty sure someone on this forum has done it and had a doco or build thread...can't remember who did it though.

You don't have to chop your roof off and put another one...I think that's going a bit far for a sunroof...you might as well make it a convertible...

Sorry can't help you there. Might be able to pick one up from the wreckers...if you're lucky.
