Help with the sunroof in a 91 GT

I've recently bought a 91 gt back in May in pretty rough condish and been fixin it up all summer. I'm almost done and all I have left to do is some welding, sanding, and painting along with the sunroof. I've scraped away all the glue that was used to seal in the glass to stop it from leaking and removed the glass. And now I'm not exactly sure what to do next. I was hoping that someone could help me and give me a link on how fix/replace the sunroof. Or if it's easy enough, to just tell me here or pm me. And if it's really complex, if it would just be best to go somewhere to get it fixed. Thanks.

I wasnt sure whether it would be best to paint it first or to put everything back together before painting it. Thanks.

Paint it first. It's bound to get some level of overspray on it if you don't. As for how to replace it, I honestly have no idea. I imagine it's rather similar to putting in a windshield though.

Re: Help with the sunroof in a 91 GT

I don't know if it's just the weatherstripping and not other things that is the problem. When I bought the car I saw the guy put a whole bunch of hot glue and just glue in general around the glass inside and out. So, naturally, that had to go. But now that I've taken the sunroof glass out and bought new weatherstripping; I'm not sure as to what to do. There might be special tools i need, there might be certain things to check/inspect for, to be cautious when handling or working with, I just don't have really any experience with sunroofs. So I was just hoping that someone could give me any tips as to what to do. Like I said before, if it is really complex and just all around better to have someone to specializes in it to work on it, then that would be the best thing to do. But in the mean time, I was hoping that I could get done what I can, while at the same time go around to glass shops.
