Hello.

The roof is made by Revozport. There’s two versions. A replacement roof panel, or, just a lay over skin. Just google “revozport e82” or something like that.

The headliner is oem BMW for a non-sunroof car.

Glass out

Had the glass removed this week. Bradley, (my glass guy) was able to remove all of it without damaging any glass or weatherstripping. Which is a sigh of relief.

More disassembly

Trunk off. Rear deck area cleared, battery tub, bumper, etc off. Still more stuff to remove still. This was just the point where I left off Saturday evening.

Getting close to cut time.

No disassemble!

Roof is off! Making those first cuts was pretty nerve wracking.

Save the tabs!

See these tabs? They hold the roof rail molding in place. The ďstandardĒ procedure when doing a carbon roof on these bmwís is to remove the entire roof panel along with these tabs. This necessitates either gluing or double-stick taping the rail moldings back on instead of using the proper clips. I call bullshit. The revozport roof is notched for these tabs. Sure, itís more work to retain them. But, itís MY car. So, my plan is to keep them exactly where they belong. These pics are just where I stopped for the night. Thereís more to do here.

More tab deets

So, these tabs become part of the roof rail now. Exact same position theyíre in as factory. I didnít even disturb the seam sealer behind them. I will clearance the carbon roof for the tiny spot welds.
This is still in progress. It will look a lot cleaner before I glue the roof on.

Saturdayís happenings

Got busy for a bit today. Pretty much finished preparing for the new roof. All tabs welded. All spot welds smoothed out. Just waiting on the new roof bow. Once thatís here and welded in, I can get the roof bonded on and then move on to the quarter panels.

Wheelhouses are heeeere!

Decided to just do the real deal 1M outer wheelhouses. Itíll actually be less work than modding the stockers and will yield more tire clearance.

No, not all of it

So, to get the outer wheelhouses, youíve gotta buy pretty much the entire inner structure. Iíll only be using the outermost section tho. itís only money...
