Default Slicktop Surgery

So I finally bit the bullet and dropped the sunroof with an OE roofskin, non sunroof headliner with CSL roof rails painted Imola to match

















Been wanting that for a long time & along with the seats, really can feel the weight loss

Wow, sounds like a lot of works.

How difficult to find a ZCP with no sunroof and manual seats?
