Ok guys i want to put one of those pop up/removable moonroofs in the ol' S-10 and i was gonna get one off of ebay and do it myself? Now im pretty good at install stuff. Ive bagged my truck (rear) and things like that. So would i be able to do this? Thanks.

to be safe when you mark where you wanna cut make a smaller 2nd cut line and cut the smaller mark first, then slowly grind towards the larger cut line. take small increments and work slow.

check my truck in the sig. mines about 15"x32". i personally like the size and its whats recommended by webasto for s10s but some might think its too small. the only thing is if you do it yourself, you have to cut out a support brace on the roof, so make sure your cutter is up to par. but if your isnt electric, then go ahead and do it yourself. just cut smaller than what it says. however if its cheap on ebay, i wouldnt get it. afterall, you get what you pay for. i spent alot of money for mine, but it doesnt leak water, air, anything. it was worth the investment.

the only reason i had it installed was because it wasent that much more than just buying it, and they offered a lifetime warrenty against leaking. But after this one, I would never pay for it to be installed again... they dident even take the headliner out before they cut the hole.

as long as they didnt cut THROUGH the headliner, they probably did that to keep from getting shavings all down in your truck interior

sorry, couldn't resist.

i'd say go for it, it's just a hole that can always be filled

if you do it yourself, just make sure you take the headliner out and cut it seperate. if you have it done.... well just have a vacuum waiting at home.
