Moonroof on 83

Recommended Posts

Has anyone removed the moon roof and patched with fiberglass. I work at a body shop, painting cars, and just started learning more bodywork. I know i can do this so I'm curious if anyone else has, how did you do it? 

 

Also stuck between 2 colors for my 83. 

Chrysler's/Dodge     plum crazy purple

Or A house of kolor pearl white with glow in the dark powder that I have at work thrown in the paint

Removing the sunroof and its mechanism and glassing over the top has been done I believe.  I know a fellow (since deceased) who owned a body shop that had an '85 Avanti who wanted to get rid of his sunroof.  He bought a NOS roof panel from Nostalgic Motors, cut the roof off his car and glassed in the new, solid roof.  I saw the car and the work was outstanding.  Doing that is an option.

As far as color...let your wife pick it.  That's what I did.

MFG recently posted on another topic/thread about how he eliminated his sun roof.  As far as color - How long do you plan on keeping the car? If it is less than five years paint it the original color, or something "normal" for the year of the car.

These should be Ed's comments, they are near the bottom of the post.
