only mig welding
i wont be welding the roof directly as everything i have heard is that it will warp the roof, i will just weld up the panel so there are no rust holes the grind off and excess.
you can easily screw the roof panel back into place using a heap of tiny 3mm nuts and bolts and some precision drillling (see above pics), i have the panel sitting perfectly flush as it was originally, I will then seal up the gap using sikaflex, it will just look like the sunroof is closed, I cannot see any other way to do it nicely, welding the panel in place is way too nasty
