    sunroof wanted after rebuil

    im looking for a sunroof for my nova as after years of rebuild i put the glass in a safe place and have lost it.
    my original is outer frame size 783mm or 30.8 inch and width 412 mm or 16.2 inch
    inner frame size 724 mm or 28.5 inch width 352 mm or 13.8 inch
    im hoping someone may have one for sale as i thought i had found one at the club stand at stoneligh but havnt heard back so i presume its a no go
    anyone have any ideas where i can find one ? i think webasto make the hollandia 100 roof that size but have to go to the states for that so any help would be appreciated
    thanks

    They sell the hollandia 100 roof in the UK, at least two members have that. Its also the one I'm planning on to replace mine. I measured Jim's at Stoneleigh an that was approximately 78cm x 40cm which is almost identical to my current one.

    Actually, just done a search for after-market sunroof supply in the uk, and amazed how few there seem to be!

    That's the sun roof I fitted.

    When you measure up the roof you'll see there are very few small enough.

    I left the rubber trim off on the inside because it looks too chucky for me.

    You can tilt or take it out & store behind the seats. Well I can because I'm a short a#@s.

    Cheers.

    It works well - even at 6ft 3" I can stow the glass behind the seats - I have a red bag for it to match the interior!

    These guys used to sell them around £250 too: http://www.sussexwindscreens.co.uk/s1.htm

    Regularly on eBay too.

    Dimensions here if it helps:
