Default Any good aftermarket sunroof installers in Boston?

Hey everybody,

I'm asking on behalf of a friend of mine who lives in the Boston area. She is looking to get an aftermarket sunroof installed in her new Honda Civic. Do any of you know of a good place to go get that done in the Greater Boston area?

Thanks for any info any of you can provide.

OK this comment isn't going to help you but I just wanted to share:

I had this crazy girlfriend way back in '99 and her mother even crazier. The mom would refuse to ride in cars with sunroofs because "everytime you get on the highway in a car with a sunroof, you get sucked outside of the car and killed!!" The mom nearly disowned my girlfriend because she would ride in my very dangerous Honda Accord Sedan which had a glass sunroof, and we would have to drive 11 dangerous highway miles to get to their house

And my ex-'s dad bought a Trans Am, the mom said she would leave him if he got the T-tops because she didn't want to watch her husband die by getting sucked out of the car. Once he got his hardtop trans am, she refused to ride in it because she was afraid that the bump in the passenger footwell was going to break open and suck her underneath the car.

To make matters worse, the mom would drive ON the dotted line on 2 lane roads and insisted that her car was too wide to fit in a single lane. My girlfriend sadly picked up on this driving habit and lived up the typical MA driver standards. I hope she got ticketed enough to have her license pulled. Now THAT would make the roads safer.

Too bad they weren't around a couple years later when I got my first sportbike.

$1000 eh?

****, I might need to have the roof on my GTI simply rewelded to make it a non-sunroof mode.

I just removed the headliner to reglue the material and the old sunroof is making me a little nervous.

Autosound in Middleton is a Webasto dealer.

I'm trying to see if it's going to be cheaper to have them install the Webasto Pop Up or have my friend weld a panel in and repaint the roof.
