Default Recommendation to perform sunroof delete

Eventually, I’d like to delete the sunroof in both the 964 and M3. Can anyone recommend a shop, especially if they’ve had it done before? Towable distance is fine.

For the M3, I’m thinking of going with a carbon fiber panel.

For the 964, I’d prefer to do the whole panel unless someone can weld a plug and make it look good.

These are long term items but I’d like to start planning.

Piper or Euro Pros for either I believe. I would think Euro Pros has more experience with CF than Piper however.

Thanks, Ken. I dont know why I never think of Piper for more than cages even though I was literally watching a video an hour ago on the e30 v10 he built...

I purchased one of these, it will save you at least the cost of the panel, more important it will speed up your body man many hours. I had mine done in LA, sorry I can't recommend anyone local.

Yes, I got a quote from them. I want it to look factory like the CSL though, not race car, so I’m wondering if I should go with an actual body shop.

Though they did a good job farming out my custom rear seat delete.

I've heard good things about D&V, just up the street from them. I've never used them, but only heard good feedback.
