We've taped a straight line just below the peak to guide a nice straight cut. We do most of this type of cutting with a small angle grinder and a good cut-off disk. We can get fairly accurate and straight cuts using this method. You can see, after the tape is removed, that we have a nice straight cut. After the top cut we grind the bottom and side edges to release the panel.

How to stop/seal rust at the bottom of my car door - inside at the seam near drain
Repairing doorskins, either by replacing them entirely, or fitting lower repair panels, may initially seem beyond the scope of a home-builder. But why? There are no special, exotic, or expensive tools required. This makes alignment so much easier when the door is refitted.
This is a very common problem on almost all older Mercedes, even if they dont live in the rust belt. Any rain water that gets into the doors through the scraper seals has to get out somewhere. That is where the problem begins.
