Windshield Frame angle

Has anyone tried to mount the windshield at a more rakish angle? Or bent the frame a tad to do this?
I don't really like the very upright look of the original. I understand that modification of the convertible top is in order, and maybe grinding a little off the side post covers to match the angle. Just looking for ideas. Oh, I am planning to not use the side vent window frames or changing them as well. {Sorry Jeff}

Thanks.

Really sorry to hear that you don't plan to use the wing window frames. Had to disassemble one of my doors to use mine for a pattern then had at least 10 hours into the fabrication. Didn't think anyone would want to buy the car with them missing. But I know you are planning to make yours one-of-a-kind in as many ways possible.

Now the vent windows are back in the works Jeff. My idea changing the windshield angle and doing suicide doors proved to be too difficult.
