    Default Cutting a hard body - question

    Hello, I have a newbright F150 body. it is an supercab flareside. the wheelbase is 16".
    If I cut out the back seat and reattach the back window panel to just behind the door to make it a 2 seater I can take out almost exactly 3 inches. I need to make 2 cuts: behind the door and just as the roof curls up from the back window. My question is what tools for accurate cutting have you had success with?
    I'm thinking hacksaw blade. My gut says that a dremmel with sawblade will make a really rough melted cut that will create more work later. Any other suggestions?
    Thank you.

    I've used a dremel and very sharp razor, but I don't have that much experience with it. I have seen floss or fishing line or something similar used though

    Check out a razor saw. Great for fine cuts and aren't very expensive.

    Cotton thread. Allows you to work nice and slow and follow your guidelines accurately....but yes a razor saw is also great.

    I second the thread cutting. Sounds impossible but it works great.
