El you got me thinking on that roof on that GTV of yours.
It looks :wow:
That said can you give me a bit more info on that black sunroof of your.
Does it leak?Do you have any idea who's done this to your car?
How does it work for you.
Can you please post some pics of that roof open/closed.

Hi Nicus. It is a Weathershield sunroof. I had to apply sealant under the frame to stop it leaking when I got it. It never leaked after, but recently I discovered some rust because the previous owner never installed drain channels. I will be redoing the roof soon. I'll post pics when I get home.

Yep, you heard right - baby! Landing early March if things go as planned. I still can't believe I'm going to be a father! Of a girl. Thinking of getting her pink overalls to work on her overcomplicated travel system when I'm messing with the Alfa:) so's I can kill two birds with one stone!

Any body here know who made this. Can't make out the name on the plate at the front of sunroof frame. This sunroof looks excellent folded back. It gives that classic 500 cabriolet look.

How much more is the wind noise than a hardtop when closed. If I decide to do this in the future Drainage pipes is going to be a Must.

Thanks, Nicus. You can google folding sunroof. I believe Hollandia is one of the brands still making them. Some cars came with dealer-fitted Webasto sunroofs.
Sunroofs generally come with drainage channels. I think the PO just messed this up when putting it back on after resto.
The wind noise is actually less with the top down and wind deflector up. I can actually have a conversation with my wife at highway speeds without shouting.
