Would the factory one work?? Would the sunroof have enough room to slide back in a ute??

thats a very good point rmyers. He will have to get just a pop up glass one. You can pick them up dead cheap now 2. I sold 2 of them for $40 each last year. At least you can put those ones in yourself 2. Amber did hers herself, and well shes a girl :P

Hopefully you wont need to get a panal beater to fix it cause youll cut the dints out for the window

Depends on what you want, Sunroof world quoted me $1800 to Supply & fit a electric slideback sunroof, same as fairlane.

Around $400 for a popup.

Ute sunroofs are around $1100, for a electric one. Sedan are about $1800. The ute one is cheaper because the sunroof pops up a slides back over the roof, whereas the sedan one they have to change the roof linig so it can slide inside the roof.
