Is there any special procedure or something I should be aware of when replacing the top lift cylinders on my 66 convertible?

Thanks in advance for help.

Not that I could think of. After you get it/them changed out, fill the reservoir with tranny fluid, run the top up and down to bleed the air out of the system. Then refill the reservoir again, if necessary. When the lines are all dark red, you know you have the air out. I would have the engine running while I was running the top back and forth too. I have been told that the chance of burning the pump motor up with less than the 12+ volts, are higher if that alternator isn't running.
