To fix it RIGHT your gonna have to remove the ENTIRE TOP & replace the roof skin IF! you can find one.

I dont know what years ,makes & models interchange or is there are after market parts available but its not a easy job .

A lot of tools & experience to R&R a job that size.

you could try N P D


Maybe some one knows of a aftermarket dealer good luck

show us a picture maybe its NOT as bad as you think

Like Rob said, just replace the whole roof from a donor car. It's not as bad as it sounds. Dan

I use to do a LOT of these jobs years ago. I have replaced darn near all the way around a window with new metal, it is possible.

Do you have a photo you can post?
