Maybe this will help.
I started the cut the opening gap about 5/8" and trimmed it as I got the frame into alignment. The forward (point) of the cut has to be far enough forward to allow the glass to lay well.
edit: Thought I'd mention that when making the cuts & welding I made sure not to lose the (2) screw holes that hold the Plastic Triangle panel on at the top, it helped when it came time to fitting & modify that piece.

You will also need to make a relief cut in the upper A Pillar to allow a bend radius.


A few pics of the body work at the lower A pillar

Lou6t4gto, I have taken over 300 pics of just the chop top process... I've basically completed that part of the project, the only thing I haven't gotten to is lowering the seats yet.
I photo document everything in detail on these kind of projects for insurance, rebuilding or when I have to sell it, so I can show the quality of whats under the skin.
Anyway glad to help, as you get to other areas Ill be glad to share my limited knowledge/experience.
