Red face roof swapping

Just need more opinions. Ihave a 1953 Bel Air 2-door hardtop. I bought a 1954 Chevy 2-door sedan for parts. Turns out the 54 is in better shape body wise than my 53. I have everything for the 54 except doors and a title. How difficult would it be to swap the roofs between the two cars? A bodyman friend says to cut through the firewall where the roof joins it and about 3 to 4 inches below the back window. What do you guys think? Thanks! Jeff

What are your plans in the future for the car? Any lid lowering planned?

No. I think it looks good with the stock roof height.
