So what do all you long time Baja folks think about installing one?
I don't think I'll go with the VW version, an after market type most likely because I'd like to pop it out on the really hot/muggy days here in Northern VA.
Where would be a good place to shop for one?

It's hard to find, as the lid on your VW is round and most cars are flat. Some one used to make one for a VW but no longer know if they still make it.

I just don't know if I'd be comfortable cutting a hole in my roof to install something that came from JC Whitney...

I'm doing what bajafun suggested and taking a sawzall to the whole friggin' roof!

JUST like that. I almost came back and bought that car from you just for the body, Bahaw. Still might. I'm a long ways from being ready for a body though. I haven't even started my chassis yet...

that sun roof is pretty nice. just make sure that you do it right. if you half ass it then it will leak, and look like crap. but other than that it is a nice dun roof.

I just installed the JCwhitney sunroof in my car yesterday. I was really surprised how nice it really looked. did not install permanently cause I am going to get paint next week. I'm almost as excited about the sunroof as I am to see the car painted after 6 years of work.
