Thanks! Next on this list is a 5.0, now I just need to figure out how to buy a donor car lol. As for the weatherstrip, I probably won’t touch it, it looks fine.

Great job! Boy that v6 has gone through a full transformation. Looks very nice. You would never know the glass top was added. Now it is ready for a heart transplant.

Get a F-150 motor. Way cheaper and then you can build it up on the side. Do the T-56 or TR-6060 while you're at it to get rid of the MT-82 and then a nice 1 piece driveshaft.

This is one fine write up. I wouldn't trade my glass roof for any other option. Glad to see with all your effort you probably feel the same.

I heard the F-150's 5.0 is a different block? The TR-6060 is nice though. Ill probably just buy a whole donor car for that project... waiting on my challenger to sell first.

This is pretty cool to see that someone did it and actually doesnt seem all that hard honestly, def makes you think about doing it.

Curious to know if the roof is one square sheet metal that you removed and then removed the 2 top reenforcing brackets that are underneath, or if it is all one piece?

I am 99% certain it is the same. I would check all the parts for the roof and see if they are the same, just to be certain, like the glass, sunshade, headliner and other bits etc...

The roof is 1 piece of sheet metal then the 2 headers. And the 2009 roof is identical expect for the interior trim, parts numbers changed in 2010 and 2013 MY

so drill some welds out and swap a few parts essentially then install glass and interior and good to go. seems straightforward enough

On a side note finally got to test the proximity sensor system I added to my car. Real simple. All cars are wired for the sensor already. All that has to be added is the overhead console with the sensor and a hood switch and run one wire back the the SJB. Then just reprogram the SJB and BCM-B with the correct programming.... 2011-14 cars do not have the security horn in the back of the car btw but 05-10 does? I dont know why....

Attachment 211637
I realize this deviates from your amazing roof swap, congratulations by the way, but what ‘proximity sensor’ are you referring to? Could you elaborate on this mod and what parts you used, etc.

Thanks
