I would cut out the sunroof hole that was made in the metal, then mark your roof with it, then cut it out. and just weld the new sheetmetal in so that the sunroof will work properly and seal like it should.

oh for sure, you will have to cut the supports in your existing roof to accept the sunroof but thats how mine is in my car from the factory. ;)

that style roof the trim ring is riveted to the mooroof track , so first you drill out the rivets . then free the track from the roof use heat, scraper s ,etc . as far as glue ,use silicone and brackets round the edges
