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 :rofl:

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 :rofl:
