    This is exactly how my 67 Barracuda boot sits. I have a glass window and never unzip it.

    Robbins is the best top on the market.

      Well I stand corrected. (it must have been my dad's rule when lowering the top) In the owners manual it specifically states "Note: Your new convertible is equipped with a non-yellowing, care free glass rear window. It is not necessary to unfasten the window when lowering top."

      My 69 Vert. I have a glass back window that is left in when I drop the top. I also leave the Boot attached to the top of the back seat when the top is up. No one rides in my back seat.

        I just bought a new top from Restoration Parts Source, with new back glass window. Price was about $440. Had to buy new pads and cables separate though. I have lowered my top hundreds of times, no need to unzip the window, I have never has a problem, I do strongly agree not to put anything in the well, keep the well liner in, and store the boot cover neatly in the trunk. Hope this helps.

          Also make sure the water weep holes on the underside of the rocker panel just in front of the rear wheels are opened. If not any water running through the drain trough as picture above will lay in the rockers and they will rot out. Here's my 69.
