chopped top

Hey... I have a 54 Ford pu, it's chopped 5"(using the overlap method) the top looks like it's moving, you can read the seam both ways thru the bondo, and it's pushing rusty water thru a split in the plastic, paint etc. Getting the body man to redo is a no go. So My options are just redo and butt weld or maybe a sunroof, or a glass roof like the old 55/56 crown vic. Any other suggestions?? Thanks A.J.
