I'd have a shop do it. There'* places that sell 'em and install 'em for you. Mostly custom accessory stores...

I couldn't agree more, My brother got his put on for 4hunned (electric roof) by a GM worker, I wanted one too but I like the Moonroofs better; actaully I never seen a bonne with a moonroof before.............

Bonnevilles don't have the moonroof style that slides into the ceiling? They all pop up and slide back tho right?

Huh ?? What'* the diff between moonroof and sunroof? The bonnies do slide into the ceiling/roof rather then sliding on top of the roof like GP'*

Personal preference.. I hate those like GP'* and Sunflowers that slides over the roof.. it'* a wing wannabe??

I always thought a moonroof slides back into the ceiling...no pop out option. The traditional sunroof pops up on an angle and the newer powered versiosn physically slide onto the roof.

Or did I get it bass-ackwards...I mean *** backwards :P

At least the my sunroof/moonroof does slide back into the ceiling or it can tilt up at an angle. The angle is nice when its raining just a bit and you don't feel like getting wet.

I agree on the rain part.. factory done on Bonnies do do that both.. I"m just merely whining about the one that slides outside the roof.
