Don't know if you have taken care of your top but to answer your question about reusing your rear window...probably not. The only way you can reuse your rear window is if the curtain (the material attached all around the window, on the bottom there is an inside and an outside layer) is still in very good shape. Usually you will get a hole in one of the inside bottom corners from raising and lowering it or the outer bottom layer will delaminate from the glass. You will also want whoever installs your top to replace the rear quarter tack strips if they are cracked and to make sure the sealer under these tack strips is in good shape. These two conditions as described above will cause leaking into your car's well liner and eventually into your trunk and the rear floors of your car. Of course there may be other issues lurking under the top like the front bow may need to be repainted and the tack strip repaired or replaced. Good luck with your project. Brian
