Question adding sunroof

I want to get a tilt and slide sunroof installed in my 91 accord LX (4dr). What type of sunroof do I need (honda or acura, year etc)? I am also getting my interior completly redone in about a month. Should I instal the sunroof before I get it done?

Well I would assume that you would want the sunroof from a 90-93 Accord for the best fit, but honestly, I don't think it's really that easy. You'll probably want to take it to a shop that does sunroofs and see what they say. They may just install an aftermarket one.

And yeah, I would probably do the sunroof before the interior.

Go to a shop and they'll chop your roof and Install a sunroof that pops up out and slides back. You might not want to be there when they perform that cause it sounds Nasty when they're cutting the Roof!
After the sunroof you can redo your Interior. Good Luck.

Some opinion said that installing sunroof can make the strength of our car becomes weak and easily deforming the car`s roof if involve in accident, like a can with a hole at it`s center easily to crunch it isnt it? What do u guys think?

I agree if it ain't factory it's not worth it jus trade-in ur 91 accord for an accord with a sunroof already installed jus my 2 pennies.
