Considering it was the first one ever attempted for this platform, ya gotta expect some learning curve. The stock sunroof/motor assembly is soo heavy, this would be a great way to shed some weight. I hope someday you (find the time/energy) to give it another go.

I was thinking the best way to go about that project again would just to be welding sheet metal over the top. But I did buy a welder so I could remount the clips for the cf panel easier than welding and painting a new piece of metal.

When Mike sent me his JDM console, I had never even seen one in real life yet. Knowing I was about to forever ruin the burlwood by pouring epoxy resin all over it was very hard to stomach.
