Yea, someone else mentioned something similar, but can that be done with the existing side glass in place?

In either case, large radius corners should help, but if true then why are the original Honda Insight and all versions of the Prius so sharp cornered?

Is the taper being equal top and side more important than a radius edge?

Does successful execution of one mean you do not need the other?
