Honestly, without the pics it's pretty straight forward.

The only thing that you might need a picture for is when you drill holes in the brackets... you just line the holes up where it mounts to the car and drill through the other 2 holes...

Grinding down the bump stops is pretty self explanatory too. You don't have to cut down the "guide strips" as I mentioned. Works either way.

I have the pics on my Computer at Home and I'm away at College right now. I might be able to get them this weekend, but the photohost should be back up soon.

Do you already have the roof?

~Peace

sunroof panel replacement

Wasn't sure where to post this, but does anyone know how to simply replace the metal panel on top? I have a replacement coming in, as the one on my 96si is rusted pretty badly (somehow it doesn't leak). I kind of get the idea from this post, but am not sure. I dont need to replace the sunroof headliner, just the panel on top. Dont know if I should replace the seal around it with the one that is with the replacement, or keep the original. Worried that I might end up with leaks, although I think that if the drain plugs arent blocked, this shouldnt be an issue, right?

Any help would be appreciated.

will the moonroof in a 94-01 Integra work?

Just curious. they look very similar in size... has anyone ever tried to put the roof from a 3rd gen integra into a 4th gen prelude? will it work?

Thumbs up This thread ROCKS!

This thread is great! I have been wanting to do this to my car since I bought it, going on ten years ago this summer. I've seen it before, but just ran into it again as my sunroof is rusting out like they commonly do in the 4th gen (Mine is 95SE). It has hit the point where I have to do something soon. However, living in Southeast Florida, I am not to sure I want to do this because of the intense heat of the summer. I know it can be tinted , but it really needs the shade, too. It is hot as balls down here and a moonroof without shade = SUNROOF.

I just went into a complete body sweat putting something away in the garage, and it is 3:30AM.

I am going to research just changing the sunroof with a replacement or even if it is possible to maybe fix the existing? However, I don't want to hijack this thread. It's just very likely that at some point or another, 4th geners are going to possibly see the light through their sunroof when closed. Mine has rusted through in a spot and I don't know how it is not leaking yet. I wish they would have just made the car with a moon roof, instead of a literal sunROOF. The last time I saw this thread, my sunroof was perfectly fine. Additionally, the electric motor should possibly be changed, also. Lithium grease helped make it better moving, but the motor is just tired. I plan to paint the entire car and give the '95 a refresh with new Sherwood Green Pearl Metallic.

One way or another, the sunroof is what is prompting me to repaint the car, as the rain of this summer is not welcome inside my 4th gen cabin. The hood has peeled, too, which I see is a common issue with 4th gen Ludes, as well.
