You are one very brave soul. Sectioning might just be the most difficult customizing trick there is to pull off effectively. So my hat is off to you for just considering the attempt.

I have to tell you Dewey, it is MUCH easier than chopping! The body is mostly "square" where you section it, chopping the top with all it's taper and curves is MUCH more difficult.
