Well, the glass broke after I got it out. Kid was trying to get to her bike and knocked it over. Also, it wasn't power, manual slider.

Interior in. Didn't know that the 87's headliner mounted differently. They have a bracket made onto the body that the 88 didn't. the 88 has a bolt on bracket. No clue why they changed that...lol

I'd be more than willing, it wasn't a horrible job, and learned a couple things while doing it. Pm me if your serious.

It didn't leave any spots on the garage floor, but I'll double check everything before I leave work today.

LOL, that was just me messing with 87redcat. No one here had a birthday today, and he had a post saying he'd buy drinks for all the birthday boys today, so I changed it in my profile to get it to show up. Real birthday is Sept 14.

BTW, car is sitting in the garage, all cleaned up, ready to go.

Did you just use spot weld removal bits to get the old roof off? Or was it more of a saw type removal? I have a wrecked 89 parts car with good head liner and sunroof assembly. I debated removing it to sell but don't want to mess it up on removal.

Cutting the roof off of a parts car with a sawzall is ok, just cut the pillars about halfway down.  Then,whoever is doing the work can remove the skin and save the edges better.  Using the spotweld cutter from the top leaves small holes in the edge, while they can be filled, it's just easier to leave them intact.

FYI, I've noticed I have more headroom after replacing the '87 and older seats with 88-89 seats.  You'd gain another inch or more and we all could appreciate that.....
