Has anyone converted the pop-up to electric. I'm only interested in the tilt mode.

I would LOVE to do this mod!! I have given it some (but not extensive) thought and came up with this:

Having had an '06 Ody with power rear pop-out windows, can the same power piece be used for our rear sunroof? I would replace the ridiculous (IMHO) passenger PW lockout switch with the rear sunroof switch. I have no idea about the electronics side, but, it can be done (look for chozn4service's front sunroof mod). His power button gave me the idea..... :roll:8)

Let us know what you come up with..... :shock::razz::razz:
I thought about eliminating the latch, and putting a spring in to hold the skylight open. Then a cable, or rod to the front of the cabin could close and latch it from up front.
Thank you all, you have given me some well placed idea's. I'll keep you posted as to what I do or should I say "try to do"

Thanks again.
