You could always change the headliner over to a non-sunroof model and weld a panel in the roof to replace the glass one. That's what the racing guys did over here for the Bathurst 1000 in the early 90s - sunroofs weren't allowed in the race cars, so a few 16Vs had them removed. I saw one of the ex-race cars not long ago and you'd never know it had one. With the amount of BXs over there, shouldn't be that hard to find a headliner at a scrappies from a low-spec model and use it? Be easier than swapping mechanical bits over to another body shell.

Did you find the BX you wanted without a sunroof David?

If not, could be a good excuse to justify buying Recaro Seats for one with a sunroof as presumably they will fit lower?

Would have the added benefit of creating a distinctive BX. :wink: 8)
