I kill Novas for a living and that's just wrong.
But....
You would need an entire hardtop roof, including the A pillars You would also need a pair of hardtop doors, and hardtop quarter pannel window regulators + a complete set of glass.

+ A couple hundred hours of labor. Or you can just sawzall the pillar out and make it look like crap.

You could probably sell your sedan and with the money you'd save just buy a hardtop.

I answered your original question the easiest way I could think to do it.

If your asking how to chop the top than your probably not qualified to do it.
When you chop a couple inches out of a roof it "becomes" longer and wider. In order to get the "A" pillar, "b" pillar, and "c" pillar to line up you have to section it, and narrow it, as well as fabricate sheet metal to make it fit and look proportionate.

Getting glass to fit is another fiasco.

Don't destroy your car man. Sell the sedan and buy the car you want.

Leave the sawzalling to the pros.
