OK, guys.  I just did this.  Vern is right.  It all has to come apart 
anyway and you save cutting a hole in the good roof.  If the wood is 
good, you save removing it.  If the wood isn't good, you still save 
drilling a gazillion holes to mount the wood to the roof.  The hole in 
the roof is not cut exactly to the dimensions of the sunroof on my 
installation (Tudor Webasto) as a slight bit of the roof metal is bent 
over the wood frame.  I don't plan on rebuilding the sunroof right away, 
but there is enough there to restore.  Removing the roof is not 
difficult, just time consuming.
