  2. Retro install sunroof question

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I am wondering if it would be possible to retro fit a factory sunroof? With all original drain pipes, switch, motor, headlining, seals, glass panel etc, I have all the parts.

    Any way of retro fitting one of these? Would all the wiring already be there and just a case of changing the stalks and fitting the mirror with sensor?
