I bought an electric moonroof/sunroof/skylight....whatever you want to call it....and I want 2 put it on my '86 Cutlass Supreme. Dont know if I want to try & do it myself or get it done somewhere. I'll get a pic up a.s.a.p. But, It's 32x20, electric, and it lifts the glass in the back and slides half way open. The roof is 50" across. Anybody have any experience in aftermarket sunroof installation?

Thats my Little Beast....it's my newly rebuilt Chevy 350 4 bolt main. I got a Holley 650 carburetor, 14x4 air cleaner, and '83 Malibu longtube headers not pictred that are goin in with it too.

The moonroof, I got off Craigslist in Jacksonville. Dude was asking $100, I got it from him for $80. It was a deal either way. The guy bought it as a replacement for a mustang. Then he wrecked his shit....Dumbass... :props:

Why? :lmao:
Im gettin it done for $200 clean at the body shop. You go ahead and ball til ya fall... Ima shine when its time. But Im definately not tryin to do it myself. I live in Florida and when it rains... Bruh it RAINS. Anyway, Im lookin forward to seeing it done. It might take a backseat right now because Im workin on droppin the motor but Ima hurt yall feelins here in a minute. Ppreciate the comments. Heres what Im workin with on the inside.

man i was saying i would rather pay for the lifetime warranty then pay $800 no warranty no part im not even getting 1 i want 1 but im not fixing to pay them prices. also if you read i said moonroof not pop up sunroof, motrizied sunroof, rag top, pop up moonroof, pop up dual panel moonroof, motrized moonroof but motrized dual panel moonroof. there is a price difference. if you dont know the difference then go look it up. if it rains like that down there then fuck da sun roof if you real about the interior

mama says: better use the plastic (no condoms, no homo)

(unless you tring to state this is how you want it too look and cgied it then forget what i post but im taking it that you said you did it unless you post up and clearfy) man your interior looks cgied all the way how the hell you gonna take 4 pics that perfectly matches up? dude if its not done shut up and get real. no one cares how good the cgied pics really are (wich are nice) but dude that just took too much time to do when you go to a interior shop its good to have these

sorry for the long post

Ppreciate the love. Its only gonna get better once my engine work is done. 12 Days at the shop, 10 now and its runnin brand new. I feel you on the buckets... Ive thought about it... But I always decide on keepin the pillowtop. I mean where you gonna find a clean original interior like I got from an '86 @? I got lucky. It FORREAL belongd to an oldlady... And she only drove it to Church! No Lie!!! But yea... cop that moonroof and ride out wit clean air in the cutty. Ima have it done before the summer leaves. I need to get the air runnin thru mine to get that "clean car/moth balls" smell out and bless it wit some lovely lovely eww wee the day it fires up. Then NO SMOKIN in the whip :props:

LilDaddy601 says he got a moonroof for a gbody... Hit him up, see what he's talkin about. Oh and '03 Chevy Malibu's got the same 32x20 electric moonroof I got. I bet there's a few junk yards with good ones out there.

Yea my car's been sittin in the same spot for about 3 months until I flatbedded it to the shop this week. My homeboys was like "when you gonna do somethin to it" and I had to :D when I tell them about all the work Ive BEEN DOIN on the motor. If it aint movin they think shit aint happenin to it. So I had to just get it movin.
