I so thought of this too, I was thinking it would be like the bug or transporter.

I would love to see it done.

Since we don't get a sunroof this would be awesome.

I called in a favor to the owner of GAS (galpin auto sports, pimp my ride)

he told me it would cost about 5k to get it done right with all the insulation and weather proofing

i had a civic with a 38x40 inch sliding rag top.
it cost me $420 in 2002. installed it myself in a few hours.
just measured and measured to make sure it was centered and cut with a jigsaw. i added a sunroof wind deflector and it never leaked even in heavy downpours, the only time i got water leaks was if i sprayed the hose into the sides when washing so i couldnt go through the automatic car wash.

The rag costs $595 - $795 and cutting a hole in the roof is $4200? :no:

Insulation? Are they putting more in than stock? And weather proofing? Ragtops aren't weather proof, you have a giant hole in your roof, they are "weather resistant".

For the rags this is where myself and Dode got ours from.........http://ragtops-online.com/index2.html
