Default CRX Glass Top Install

I've been researching as much as I can, but I still have just a few q's.

If I ordered a cut roof glass top with only the headliner, no trim pieces around, could I use my USDM Si ones?

Whats the best way to install it? Layer it on top of a edge left by the old roof?

Should I weld it or use adhesive?

Whats the typical price of a cut roof?

for a proper install, you should drill the spot welds off and remove it that way. theres a how to somewhere but its late and im lazy. but say no to cut/weld.
youd have to remove the windshield in order for this procedure to happen. goodluck.

What I'm looking at.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

$500 for roof plus $250 shipping to Canada from NorCal (I'm super close to Seattle).

Long *** read so in a nutshell he says (and all of his friends lol)...

-Buy the bulk roof
-Get the glass professionally removed
-Drill out the welds of the glass top frame to seperate it from the bulk
-Cut your roof leaving about a 1.5" ledge from the channels to align the new frame on
-Weld and/or use adhesive to stick the frame on
-Put glass on and check for leaks

I don't have a glass top yet. I'm looking for ideas on how to install one.

My car is a Si so I do have the sunroof right now but its rusty and it probably needs a seal soon. I figured I'd get rid of thoes problems with a glass top.

USDM CRX Si? No. JDM CRXs only I believe. US/Canada have metal sunroofs, Civic Si has moonroof/sunroof.

As already stated, the glass top in this thread is not a sunroof which the USDM models received.

As cool as it is. I think it would be cooler to take a civic si 03 or 04 sunroof and put it in the crx. that way you got a glass top and it moves too so you can open it.
