I would draw your line W/a sharpie or other marker, then use something for a straight edge (board, alum. level, ect.) And go over it w/ a exacto knife, making several passes going deeper each time. Just be sure its warm, a cold one will be more brittle--but I guess it is aug. just dont know how warm it is in mn. If cold, bring it in the house, or use a hair dryer
I have done it with my last two sleds. Its very easy. Get some blue vinyl fineline tape (1/4" works well) and lay it out on your windshield. This lets you see what it will look like before you cut, and also lets you look at it and make sure you get both sides the same height, etc. Then you can cut it with either a dremel or tin-snips. IMO its better with a dremel, I have had a windshield crack when cutting it with snips. The last step is to put the black trim back on your newly cut windshield, and cut to length.
Here are before and after pictures of cutting the windshield on my ZR and XC
