Sounds like a simple storm panel that any glass shop can make. If you have one, bring it with you as a sample. If that's not possible, a piece of plexiglas that the same thickness as the storm panel can be used.
If your set on using the 26 doors and cut them down, use a paneling [fine tooth] blade. Masking tape over the cut line will also help minimize tear out. You'll need to reinstall the style since you've cut into the hollow section of the door. IMO it's easier/quicker to rip one off of a 2x and insert it [with glue and a few brad nails] than it is to remove, clean up and reuse the one in the cut off portion of the door. I'd expect the doors originally used in your house to be better than most doors for sale today.

You can special order any size door you want.....at a price. I would opt to have the old ones refinished, or better, yet, refinish them yourself. This is a DIY forum, and we encourage you to do just that. We have paint guys here who know their stuff. Good Afternoon, I'll have to try posting pictures thank you for that. As far as the 26 inch doors that was my bad. I put a post on Craigslist under wanted 20 inch doors I got a reply the next day from some contractor I guess he must keep the stuff he tears out of jobs he does. Anyway he told me he had 20 inch doors like the ones I have since I put pictures up of them. So I took the hours drive to his warehouse & when I got there he said he made a mistake they were 24 inch doors I figured 24 inch would be OK & they are in mint condition for $10. I thought great. When I got them home & measured them they were 26 inch doors so now I'm listing them to sell. I did send emails to both Lowes & Home Depot & both were very helpful I was not home yesterday but Home Depot called & said they could get them I think I have to call them back. As far as me redoing these & I know this is a DIY site but I think the tools I would have to buy not to mention I have no idea what kind of stain they used if it even is stain it would be cheaper for me to have them done if not cheaper at least they would know what they are doing. As far as I go the only DIY projects I feel comfortable doing is working on my classic Chevy's that I know. Also I tried lowering these & I don't even think I have enough door & if I put a 1/2 inch piece of wood under the track then the track will show. Thank you again for your help. Will,
