Default Sunroof fix.

Okay so does anyone have some demo pics of what all would be involved in removing the headliner to replace the sunroof unit on a 2000+ ssei? I am gonna try and save some $ for mods and I figure that it would be a good idea to try and do this myself over spring break in two weeks.

Well, guess what. I just happen to have a 2000 SSEi sitting in my shop and it'* being stripped down. Saturday we will be removing the sunroof. I guess, if we remember, perhaps we can take a bunch of extra pictures and do up some kind of write up.

Oh quick question...on the gauge cluster can you just replace the plastic on it or do you have to replace the entire cluster, mine is kinda clouding up really bad and there are several scratches on it that are really showing now....don't ask how they got there because I don't know....
