Note sure anyone has done that yet!

Cutting one hole would be scary, but two affraid

All the best if you doo it

Scooby fortunately already has one in the centre of the roof.

I guess it would depend on how much you affected the structure of the roof. It's made up of a sheet of marine ply, a section of polystyrene and then the glass fibre. It's not perfectly flat and therefore the more holes you cut into it, the more it will flex and the more leaks it may develop. I really don't rate those moon roofs. They always seem to leak.

Take the whole pop top off and you'd have a huge sunroof!!

I have a sunroof unable to leave open when it rains, I have looked into fitting a Heiki roof (one like in a caravan) this gives a ventilation even when closed and you can open when raining. Tim
