You *might*, depending on how it handles bending 'sideways', be able to make a sort of 'smile' for the glass you have the ends of the heater about 4" up along the side of the glass by the A pillar, then the 60" across, and 4" up again. Of course, you're not going to be at the extreme edges of the glass, so maybe it'll be more like 5" high on each side. This may also help keep the snow 'push' area clearer, too. Heck, if 68" is the shortest you can trim it, leave it even longer and start higher up the windshield on each end.
