they cut up your existing roof lining

i was able to get a sunroof for $100 but the main cost was getting it fitted - most places wanted between 800-1000

your not going to try and do that yourself?

The button was a 2-way button mounted on the roof bewteen the front sun visors.
The unit qould cost 2-2.2k installed these days in an EF/EL.

Best bet is a propper sunroof installer!
Dont goto panel shops like a mate of mine did (on cheaper pricing) as they turn out like sh!t.

The install is something yiu would REALLY want done as well as possible as t will make or break the project/car!

maybe he means he couldn't re use it, because the sunroofs used in falcons are the same as used in fairlanes. If you get a new one, spend the extra dollars and get a full electric one. Pop up ones... well.. they just pop up :lol:

A while back I spoke to The Sunroof Centre here in Melbourne. He quoted me $1800 to install a new Electric Sunroof. The same unit as used by Ford. So if this guy is telling you he can't install a Fairlane one into a Falcon he doesn't know his s**t or just can't be bothered with it.
