    Wow....this is an old post. BTW, I have a tan astroroof switch panel. One of the screw mountings is broken (I have the piece that broke off and it can be glued back on), but aside from that it's nice. I know its not white, but those astroroof switch panels are pretty hard to find.

    Especially in white. Could probably just paint it white.

    If the switch is able to be disassembled dye it white.

    If you try to install a Factory roof in a car that was not made for it, you're looking for an S-load of trouble. Opening edges are rolled. Aftermarket roofs don't require that. They have a molding around the opening, such as this:


    Most upholstery shops can install.

    Not only that, but none of the mounting points are present either.

    Unless you don't mind paying big bucks for some custom fab work on the roof, or even swapping on a roof from an AstroRoof car, after market would be the way to go. Most can be wired to work with original switches.

    Re: I really, really want an astro roof...

    Yeah, my two cents, an astro roof isn't the kind of thing that should be fitted aftermarket. It's way too much work to be done, and unless you're going to do it yourself and live with the consequences, no body shop or installer is going to do a good enough job to keep it from leaking or creating a ton of wind noise.
