Sorry I'm new to this but decided to make a thread of my 280z progress.I bought it with a sunroof and have decided to patch it up

This is how it looked like before.

So the first thing I did was try to get the actual sunroof piece out.

After started cutting right under that line where the roof met the sunroof

 Now all I gotta do is grind, make everything straight and patch up a new piece to cover the hole👌

 

Sorry for very little detail I took too little pictures. Will try to do better next time

I removed it, Removing was Easy....


Dollying it out and getting the welds perfect..LOTS of work!!!

 

Ended up skimming the roof like 3 times to get it perfect!  Super happy with the result but damn I wish I bought one without a sunroof LOL...
