Old school sunroofs?
Has anyone ever added a sunroof to their van? Do aftermarkets still leak like they used to, or is that an installer thing? I was thinking of His and Hers and a big one in the middle of my '85 12 passenger.

I installed a sunroof on my 99 Express about 8 years ago and IMO they are a great addition to your vehicle.
Yes, mine did leak but as you menioned it IS an installer thing If you take your time and seal it properly you should not have any problems. I think the sealant that I used became brittle and therefore began leaking.
I put my sunroof in the front, right above the driver/passenger seats. But I think you might have a problem putting another in the middle of the roof. Is your roof completely flat? Most of the back of my roof has ridges. If yours does you may have a problem getting a tight seal. Take a look at your roof and let me know.

Yes, it is ridged all the way back, and I hadn't considered that! I guess that will limit my options, won't it?

Well at least you can put one in the front. Just remember to take your time when you do the install and you'll have yourself a nice addition to your van
