Chopping your roof dowN.......

One day I want to slightly chop the roof on my tc cortina. I want to go down about 4-6 inches. Is this a massive operation?

What is involved? Has anyone done it before (that is reading this)?

It looks sweet, if you want to see how it looks;

CHOP mE TOO please!

Thanks.

Damn. I was hoping it wasnt going to be that expensive. I guess its going to have to be one day in the distant future.
