It is doable..however when you make the cuts the top will not set down just right so you will need to figure out just how to get the curve just right and faired in when you reattach the top..on metal since it can be stretched and shrunk one can do some pie cuts and hammer weld in some pieces and get the curve right..On glass you will need to make a transition piece by making a temp mold and getting the curve to fit..A good glass man could do it and you can as well if you wish to go through the learning curve of building glass parts..

Would look sweet when done..Just going to be quite a pile of work to get there..
