I'm looking at getting a genuine EL sunroof, I know of one going cheap and I was just wondering how much I'd be looking at to get someone to fit it for me?

It comes complete with everything needed to make it work, I just need it installed. Ideas?

professionally, I paid $1100 for mine to be fitted. That was the sunroof I provided, and they made a new roof lining to suit (as they chose bot to use the one I gave the installer with the roof).

If you are game, you could have a go yourself :wink:

HERE is a link to the part of BenJ's wagon thread covering his sunroof install.

Cheers for that! So many pages I would have never found that by myself. It doesn't seem to difficult really! I've looked at a few different installs now, on youtube too, and if you take your time it may just be worth saving the $1100

BenJ's thread is indexed so it makes it a hell of a lot easier to find stuff. Have a look through the 'Garage' sub forum, heaps of good info on different mods to be found there.

Just remember...if you f**k up, it will be more than $1100 to fix the roof up.

In saying that, measure more than once before cutting and you should be good :).

I think if I decided to do it myself I'd be doing everything possible to make sure I got it right haha. :P "Measure twice..." is way to little times haha. :lol:
