Default Is It Possible To Remove The Split Moonroof On My 6th Gen And Install A Sunroof?

Title says it all. I've got a split moonroof on the roof of my car. It's nice...but not as nice a sunroof. Anyone know if it's possible to remove this and get something better? Thanks in advance.

Bummer...yeah I figured. Would you happen to know how much that costs? I just started looking into it so I have no idea and would like to know what to expect. I want this done eventually.

Sounds expensive to do . Expensive to the point where it might be cheaper to trade for a Max with a sunroof already lol .

Paging @Danski6MT! He recently did a roof transplant, maybe he can help. Check out his thread Danski6MT's Elite Radiant Ember Max Revival

Oh well. Thanks for getting back to me so fast guys, and Nismo, I recognize your username from Youtube. I pretty much found this site because of you and I'm glad I did, lol. I'll just stick with my moonroof then. It's better than nothing and at least it's unique.....just wish it was functional.

Thanks Officer.

Josh,
This swap/mod will fit directly onto your Max's roof as per my post officer frasher mentioned above. IF you have more questions just ask, and I will try to answer them

Its not that bad. The worst thing is that its very time consuming. As far as cost is concerned.
-Roof out of a wrecked Max.<depends on what deal you negotiate. +- 500
-removal and install of windshield/rear glass +- $250
-3M Automix epoxy $ 100
-swapping headliner, if it didnt come with the roof you purchased
-tools (spot weld remover, grinders, etc...rivet gun)

Comments
  
  Great advise!

Excellent info. I think you should make this into a whole new thread and post some pics. I will sticky it.
