So my sunroof has shattered twice and after some research I've realized this is quite common for G3s in Florida...so I've been thinkin about removing the sunroof assembly and deleting it by welding a piece of sheet metal and insulating it so it doesn't make noise while driving...but I wanted to get some input before I start it...so lmk!...thanks!

You don't want that,
1) it will never be as smooth as a teg without sunroof
2) it can be heavy with the bondo
3) it MIGHT crack if ever you do some crazy auto-x or track (if the guy put loads of bondo) event that cause a lot of body flex

If you don't want the sunroof, you may look into gettin a CF insert instead.

If you're willing to spend, I believe they offer carbon fiber sunroof deletes. This thread is has some info, although it's a few years old.

wtf?

1) if you go to a good body shop, yes it will
2) not any where close to being as heavy and hardly any bondo should be used. once again, go to a good body shop
3) there is not going to be enough strain on the roof to cause it to crack


if you want to do it, find a good body shop and buy the roof liner from a sunroof-less teg. done.

i figure with pure metal which is what a type r has and maybe some insulation ull be set.
the insert is a good look if u want that. if not i dont see how the sheetmetal or whatever type you want would have any problems as long as its done right

agreed if the body shop is good enough they should be able to do it without using much bondo at all

I'm looking to do the very exact thing, and I think a good body shop will perfect such a modification. Problem is where to get the roof of a Teg with no hole for the sunroof it's almost impossible.

Also there is a seller on Ebay that sells Carbon Fiber roof caps. you take the whole window assembly out and put the roof cap on. it covers the whole roof. heres a pic, i tryed finding the link on ebay but couldnt find it. it might of ended, but check in a couple of days and it might be back on.
