Default 2001 Sebring - Salvage the entire soft top ?

Hi, I have a 2001's Chrysler Sebring 2.7 V6 convertible.
I would like to know how to salvage a soft top (frame + soft top) on a scrap car ?
Can I unscrew only 2 large screws at the base of the frame? (see the image explained below)

Thank you for your answers.

You will have to disconnect the hydraulic lift mechanism and detach the bottom rear of the top (the "tack rail" in the drawing.)

Ok, Finally I will not recover everything but only the rear window.
Can the rear window be easily removed from a soft top ?
Thanks.

If by "easily" you mean "with a jackknife" then I suppose the answer is yes. The hard part comes when you try to install it in your car.

Of course, the installation will be complicated.
Would you know how to go about replacing the glass ?

Thanks for your help.
