    most 'plugs' you find replace the entire sunroof assembly and just plug the hole, leaving you sunroofless. there are a few pieces that replace only the sunroof skin, and you still would have a fully-functional sunroof with a fiberglass/carbon fiber panel, but these are generally hard to find and expensive if you do. lighterfaster.com sells a complete carbon fiber sunroof plug kit, and from what i've read they're extremely good quality. i plan on buying one myself eventually, when i have the extra cheese to spend.

    another option would be to search around on the internet or on the phone for wrecked CRX Si's in dryer states that are less prone to rust. I had no problem finding a rust-free panel a year or so ago when I started restoring my rex.
