Chop Top,,,,,,

Hi,ive only chopped one top,and cut down one windshield,so im NOT the authority. BUT,what i did,was use a 1/8 inch door skin (HD) to make a pattern,then after the skin,fits the hole,perfectly,i put it into the rubber weatherstripping,and installed the skin,as a windshield,(i had to make 2 patterns) then,when i was satisfied with the fit,i removed it from the weatherstripping,and duct taped it to the new glass before cutting.
