The sunroof cars have a metal sub structure for the sun roof mechanism. You loose about 1 1/2-2" of headroom with the sunroof. We cut most of the roof out, coming in 2" from the front and rear windows and rain gutters. The roof section we cut out weighed 39 lbs. We installed a carbon fibre roof weighing 5 lbs.
I tied the roll bar into the A & B pillars and sections or the remaining roof where the roll bar was close.

In my Carrera 3.0 (older I know) there is nothing but the roof skin. No support structure. This is a non sunroof car.
Sometimes my finger move quicker that my mind.

Good to know that there is no extra support there. I am thinking I can shave a few pounds from the top of the car. Although that CF roof panel sounds like a good option.

Any info on where I can get one?
