93 FD Glass Sunroof - Aftermarket Install

Greetings! New FD owner here.

During a discussion I was told that 93 FD's did not come with glass sunroofs. Well mine has one. So after looking at the switch it is an aftermarket setup.

My question now is - If i need a part for the sunroof, Where do i go? I am really hoping that its the same dimensions as the factory unit so that I can possibly just buy a delete panel.. Anyone that has a factory sunroof and wouldnt mind taking some measurements for me?

Thanks guys!

That is definitely aftermarket, your seats have been recovered as well. I'm no FD expert yet but that spare wheel looks different too.

Did you get a vehicle history report with this car?

That spare wheel wont even fit on the car (it's 4 lug). You can buy a new roof without the sunroof and have it installed. $2-3k done.

I would say that it was put there to fill the space in the trunk cavity.
