My questions are about the rivets on sunroof tracks my tracks are so rusted i cant see where they really are or how many there should be. Plus it looks like theres some sort of rubber or something black under the tracks? Plus when i drill them out whats stops them from leaking after? Plus i read about drilling some new drain holes in the coners this does t make any sence to me where woukd the water run to then ? I see there an gap in the frame im sure thats where it would dip to but wouldnt that cause it to run into the car on headliner then down inside car? My car leaks now i thought it wS the sunroof but i tested this by duct tapeing the whole sunroof glass and i car leaked still car parked up hill it dips out the back of the headliner car parked down hill rain dips off front of headliner. So if i cant figure out the track thing i think i just want to put a solid roof on. That would help trouble shoot this water leak problem plus i hate the sun anyways. Lol
I ended up making my own by brazing a piece of steel to a 6x1mm nut.
If I remember correctly, the bolt comes up from inside the car, through the metal roof and into this nut so it helps hold the roof down. A good dolop of weather seal stops water getting into the car. I think I used RTV when I did my roof.
In the last two pics you can see the drain hole just by the corner of the black part of the roof:
------------------ Anything I might say is probably worth what you paid for it, so treat it accordingly!
Im not so much trying to replace hardware. More trying to find the rivets placement to drill them out. I cant see anything because of rust and decay. And i didnt want to start driling and be somewhere im not suppose to be. Like how many viets are up there and where at?
...you can see the drain hole just by the corner of the black part of the roof:
I cropped the last image to clearly show and label where the drain holes are supposed to be. And if they're not there, drill 'em... carefully! (Just go through the fiberglass panel, not through the metal roof itself.)
Im not talking about driling drain holes. Im talking anout getting out the old rivets by drilling them out but i cant see them bacuas of rust and decay. I need pic of good rivets not drain holes. To drill out track virets
Its cool thank you. But im not at that step yet. Im trying to get the tracks out first. And see if i can do this first and see how bad it is under them then when there out and the area is cleaned up and i can see whats what then ill drill the bew drain holes. Its a ducks in a row thing. Lol
I never said i didnt appreciate you guys for posting them. It was a question for where rivets where. Añd where the water gos after i put new drain holes in. Like what stops it from flowing down into car after. I respect everyone for any help i get. Love to help when im able to. But things come off wrong sometimes with texting. Thanks again guys .
Sunroof is gone now as of just now. Cut it out at top of A pillars and put soild roof panel i had from my 86gt back on. Going to glass it back together. It was alot ez than trying to remove the whole panel and went fast . Other than me putting pressure on windshield and "pop" a long crack now. But oh well it happens we get free windshield on insurance here in florida one time a year.
