    For those who are or have already restored a 2G,

    Now that they've stopped making parts for these cars, how do you handle replacement/repair of:
    Sunroof
    Airbags
    Ignition system
    Transmission and clutch ??

    In particular,

    I have a leaky stock sunroof due to rusting between the glass and the attached metal strip. Is there a repair or replacement?

    I'm also wondering what to do about the airbags. As old as the car is, I'm thinking they may be unsafe, although the airbag computer under the armrest looks fine.

    If I can settle those issues, then I can go ahead with a post-crankwalk engine rebuild, and trying to figure out the screwy electrical system around the starter.

    Thanks ahead of time for any help or suggestions.

    Keep an eye on that site. They get miscellaneous used parts all the time. They ship too.

    As far as the clutch goes you can buy new ones anywhere really. There's so many options.

    I would be more worried about all of the exterior plastic and rubber trim. They are pretty much ALL discontinued.

    The airbags should be fine as long as no lights are on for them.

    Funny I've dealt with all of those problems on the 98


    You can repair the air bag cover yourself. You will never find a good 97-99 air bag cover in black

    You can scuff up the metal plate of the air bag frame and use glue, or do like I did and drill small holes in the back frame of the air bag, and make holes in the side of the cover, and use tiny zip ties to hold the cover to the frame
