Post going convertible from a 4 dr hard top

hey pros, hope u guys can help w/ this one. i've got 57 4 dr hard top belair and i want to cut the top off. i know, i know. but i'm gonna do it anyway. i can't be the first person to have done this so i need some info. what support do i need for the frame? i've seen a x member for the middle of the frame but i think it was a repalcement peice for a convertible. maybe that all thats needed? where can i buy it? also the windsheild is the same for ht and conv. but is the window frame itself strong enough when i lose the top? i don't want to eat the windshetld at 55mph. yikes!
thanks for all your imput and help.

mike
