Rust bucket tii parts car lives with the help of a 76 shell. With fresh golf paint, canvas sunroof to replace the ugly aftermarket glass one, and all the tii components. Been driving it for a week now. Thanks to the board, Russ ti, Bill Cook, and all the other parts contributors. Hope the attache pic works

I've been dying to do a roof like that. Is it a Webasto? Have you blasted water at it or driven at triple-digit speeds yet? How was the install generally? Cheers!

Webasco was very anal about selling to "professionals" only. They ony offer an electric modle anyway This one came from Streetbeat Custom out of Arizona. http://www.streetbeatcustoms.com/ragtopsunroofs.html. Have not had it above 70 yet/ wind noise is comparable to my 75 with factory sunroof. Must open the quarter windows with the sunroof or you get pressure pulses. Passed rain test last Wed. no leaks

Installation was pretty straight forward, cut hole, drill holes, and install frame with bolts. Frame is very solid so roof is probably stiffer now than the sheet metal was. Also bought a couple of yds of matching headliner material and had local shop make new headliner using old one as a pattern. It was an easier installation than on my 75 with factory SR.

not sure of the laws of your state, but here in cali i think you just admitted to at least one felony!! (later in the thread) vin swapping is a big nono, at least 'round these parts (which i notice you aint 'round! ;)) NICE car anyway, and i too love that style of sunroof!! :)

Sr is a 35x 35.

No vin issues here, I'd be hard pressed to to say which chasis contributed the most parts. The car is compiled from many donors Everything that moves and rolls came from the tii along with some sheet metal. Bottom line is it is registered as the one that came with a title.

The 76 shell turned out pretty well didn't it ? Very nice job on saving a Tii and using a great color with a fabric roof. Here's a picture of my son driving our project car.
