Thumbs up 54 5 window truck top chop and corner glass

I have a book on chopping it shows a 54 being chopped but it does not mention anything about the corner glass. I know that this is tempered and cant be cut unless it is annealed cut and re-annealed, I have thought about recessing the glass but dont want to cut into the window frame fearing moisture entry i suppose plexiglass would work but not my first choice. any suggestions?

Part way down it is mentioned that laminated glass quarter windows are available which can be cut down.

Talking %4 chop

Kieth

You are the man! I emailed them to see if they can help me out.
I didnt want to have to drop the glass in the cab or use plexiglass or saran wrap. Ironiclly I work with glass a lot stained and fused art glass and was actually thinking about re annealing the glass but what a distater it could be. so thought no chop we shall see. thanks again Will
