Installing Bi-Fold closet doors

I need to know what size bifold closet door I should buy. My closet's opening is 80" Height & 71" wide. At present I have sliding doors.

80" height okay but 71" width a little narrow.  Most prefab kits (36" x 2, 4 doors) would need a minimum of 72", maybe a quarter inch smaller if you have a perfectly square opening.  You could widen the closet entry if possible or get solid core doors and cut 1/2" from the 2 lead doors.  Louvered doors and the 2 or 6 panel ones may not be recommended to cut, maybe someone else has experience doing this.  I know the height can be shortened a little if needed.

 

60" wide is the next size down so that's another option w/ appropriate entry work.
