I'm wanting to add some sun roofs to the wagon. One in the front and one down the back over the cargo area.
Because I've got the LCD mounted on the roof I'm going to go with mechanical units not electric as they take up less room.
I've found these two:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... :IT&ih=019
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... :IT&ih=011


With both of those I can get a pair delivered to my hosue for under $450.00 - not too bad I don't think. The Moonraker is cheaper in buy price and postage.

Thing is that they look identical - but are different brands - ones a Moonraker, the other is a Sunraker. I can't find a manufacturers website for either.

I did however find that ModYourCar.com.au sell the Sunrakers also but for a significantly higher price...

Yeah, we've done 2 of them.

Are you looking at getting them installed, or will you do that yourself?

There's a thread somewhere I made with steps and pictures on how to install them.

I'll see if I can dig it up :)

Stinking hot days never really made any difference to be honest.

Firstly I live in Hobart - stinking hot days do not exist here.

Secondly, I plan to have it tinted nice and dark if possible.

No fear of them leaking or jaming open like some after market and genuine ones.
