Default Replacement Sun Roof Panel because of Rust?

Hi.

My ford 1997 probe's sunroof panel is rusting pretty bad and I wondering if there was a way of getting it replaced either by OEM or some type of custom item?

The auto repair place told me that they are unable to get the parts from the manufacturer anymore.

Please let me know if someone is able to help me out here?

Thanks!

Grounded Conceptz had a carbon fiber moonroof panel. They are one of the vendors over on PT.

Agreed, definitely the way to go if you don't want to spend a fortune. They are hard to find because a lot of them will be just as rusty.

Although the panel that GC makes is the best solution to the rust problem, you might be able to get lucky and find a rust free OEM panel in a part out thread here.

have you guys had to replace the top panel (Moon roof/sunroof) in your ford probe as well?

I like to think I take pretty good care of my car but Florida is a rough environment with the salt water.

Thanks.

Default Has anyone tried the UK fiberglass roof panel

Hi.

The 2 places that seem to have options for a Ford probe rusting sun/moon roof seem to be located in Canada and England( none apparently in America)

Has anyone know about the UK fiberglass roof guy?

http://www.fordprobestore.co.uk/stor...30b6dbbd8f1757

Thanks for your help
