Scott,

You might find it less of a headache to simply remove the siding all together, install the new window and trim, then reinstall and clauk the siding.

I had a similar situation when I installed 3 new windows that didn't previously exist, and moved the door. Was far easier to remove the aluminum siding, do the framing and unit install, then put the siding back up than it would have been to cut the siding exactly to the correct width while in place.

Removing the siding will ensure you can attach the window correctly, as well as flash it correctly.
