I've had so much inspiration and guidance from fellow growers here regarding topping autoflower plants. Although It's not an exact science it can be done and can bring huge yields. Every autoflower strain is different and therefore hard to judge how long a veg period they'll have. For instance...
If they're growing real good, top em by the end of week 3.
Give them a little bit of defoliation and you may be able to extend the veg a little as well. (I ran across this theory and am still experimenting with it, but I did manage to get an auto to veg for 2 months, others 6 weeks, and one was 4-5 weeks.)
Today i adjusted the cement shoes tie down job. She was leaning at a strange angle so i straightened her up a bit and then pulled her down a tad on one side to level her out. Took the stakes off and put them in the soil as anchors for my garden wire.
This really caught my attention after seeing how this works, love it and already started on my Gorilla Glue #4, and I cut 5 clones from her as I was doing this, it'll be sweet if they root, I will be doing this on my Northern Lights also, thank you for this awesome information.
My 2 Quadlined girls have reached budlet stage. I am wondering if it is too late to do another round of supercropping to level the canopy even further and bring the height down 6 inches. Other than that they appear happy and looking good to my eye.

Dropped 4 beans today.
Lost Coast OG
Gorilla Glue #4
Excited to be back at it and will make sure to post pictures along the way! It's been inspiring seeing all the people try quadlining lately. Sometimes growing gets a bit redundant it's its almost been overwhelming seeing many people trying it out and having such success and beautiful plants!
Wowie this cement shoes is turning into a little bush fast. Just 5 days since I put the chop on her and quad lined her out. Had to tighten down the restraints. Really glad I decided to quad, will make it easier to train down the road.
