Default Body guys: Fixing dented roof

I bought my '06 impala with with damaged roof. A tree fell on the car bad enough to break sunroof. The Sunroof was repaired but the roof wasn't.

I saw a gray impala on Craigslist for parts and it had me thinking. Could this be an easy repair as getting a new roof skin from a donor car?

I'll snap a photo in the morning. The one I have makes it look like a perfectly good roof.

I'm surprised the sunroof actually seals with those dents

You can try to pull them out (either the suction cup way(no body changes but less likely to work) or drill holes/pull/bondo/paint)

Or bondo the dents so it smoothes it out and then plastidip
