    Lightbulb Sun Roof for My Black Mamba _ City 2009

    Hi All ,

    I just joined PW and saw some amazing stuff/mods being done by fellow PWers....... so this gave me a WILD idea to get a sunroof for my City 09 ..... this lead to the ultimate confusion ...... No one has done it on City ...... It might not go well at the end ....... Resale of the car ??...... So now i am Confused!!!!!

    I know if all goes well i will be the first one to pull it off for a City !!!

    Need suggestions here
    My Action Plan :: Should I or Should I not go for aftermarket sunroof for my Black Mamba??

    Spano's DIY Sunroof on his 95 civic has deeply inspired me for this Punga! Lolz

    Totally confused. Some say Go for it!! Some say Dont even think about it.
    What do you guys suggest. I need sincere suggestions like....

    Impact on Resale of Car
    Originality being disturbed
    Satisfied End Reults i.e Water draining while rain etc
    Electrically perfect working
    Inner ceiling "pooshish" being intact after 6 moths or more.......

    My Inspiration : Spano's 95 civic
    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/d-i...civic-95-spano

    For reference: My current car thread
    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/mem...de-black-mamba


    Anxiously awaiting feedback on it from some experts .... specially those who have done it ..... !!!

    Installing a sunroof while rebuilding an OLD civic 95 is one thing, but ruining your new car is a totally different ballgame.

    Don't go for it... you shall spoil the resale.. and if it doesn't end well... u would be ending with water inside everytime it rains..

    If sunroof is such a big necessity for you bro, sell the car and get a used oriel.

    If people can install alarm systems, speakers, power windows, in dash systems, etc. by opening the car, why not this? Apple, you are right; Spano's installation has inspired me too. Only thing is, I don't have one! But once I buy one, m going to do the same Inshallah. Go for the idea. Having it in a local Honda shall be an unexampled idea indeed. Be unique!

    Spano had a bunch of very talented and skilled guys who worked on his car.
    If you think you have got such skilled acquintances, whom you can fully trust, only then go for this SR.
    Otherwise you might end up ruining your car.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    Hey hey hey !!! Whats the issue in it ?????
    I remember back in 2003 - 2004, Khalid Naeem had got it done in his lastest Se Saloon. Whats the issue in it? If we bunch of literate car enthusiasts also start having car dealer approach about re-sale, then we should not blame the illetare car dealers for their pointless debate to lowe the value of car just because of a minor touchup.. I personaly would buy this car over a standard honda city if both are for sale at the same time.
    If i find it difficult to sell my car with aftermart sunroof, i,ll simply take out the sunroof, fill the whole with the same piece taken out at the time of installing sunroof and get it fixed and painted. Believe me in Pakistan we really have such denters and painters which would not leave slightest of a sign that the roof has ever been cut and filled back again.

    I dont care abt the resale .... i am sure if the roof is installed perfectly then i would get plenty of buyers for the car

    My only worry is to find a denter who has hands on experience and tools available to make this project a reality

    Plus its not a necessity ...... You can easily find thousands of orials roaming around the road - For me its being unique and the first one to have a car like this in Pakistan

    People should be concerned about the resale of their car, you put in your hard earned money into it.. why on earth would u wanna waste it on purpose??
    And stop blaming dealers for everything... its their business, they are entitled to a profit.
    Touch-ups DO matter... wouldn't everyone pay for a clean car as opposed to one which has been dented and painted?? or a car that has its bonnet repainted.. signifyng the car MIGHT have been in a front hit?? Its common sense dude.

    Exactlyyyyyyyyy!!! Now ur gettig it!
    The car might have been hit from front if repainted of touching is done.. There is no touching or repaint required to install sunroof.. Then why would it loose resale?
