there was a thread similar to this last year, end result was dont do it yourself, no matter what.

dont attempt it yourself. ive seen someone do it and all it resulted in was a ****ed/written off car with a creased roof, a sunroof that leaked....and lots of laughter. its dangerous and just pay the $1-2000 to get a proper one installed.
