Hi Leroy
....the bottom line is this mate...This is a job for a pro. and the pro needs to know someone damn handy at removing and reinstalling the sunroof...rarely will you find a trim shop or a paint shop that wants to tackle the rotten sunroof. it's a specialist's job as it's a real pita.............
yes I don't doubt there is some whizz kid amongst us who did it all themselves but ask your self this "are you feeling lucky?"!!

3 days sounds about right. You have to remove all the upper interior trim to start. The sunroof lining just pulls off with clips in the front. Then unbolt about 20 nuts and the entire lining comes out on the frame. I dont think you don't have to remove the sunroof. Glueing the new one one could be challenging to get tight and square.
