I assisted my step father in restoration of several 67-72 Chevrolet and GMC trucks in the mid 2000s. On one of those, a "Camper Special" we cut the roof off of an old Uhaul Dually which had clearance lights and corresponding raised buckets to replace the rotted roof panels on the 3/4 ton.

Despite measuring 5 times and using oem pieces, this was a painstaking undertaking.

Since you are removing your factory tail lamps, you will have to build filler panels. This makes me wonder if you would be better off pie cutting the length of your chop through this section of the body. This would leave your roof and windows in tact. You would end up with misaligned door hinges and a gasket that would need attention, but that seems to be much less work that what you have been describing.
