convertible quarter glass removal

All, have a quick question. In removing the quarter glass, I know you have to remove the inner trim panel, doglegs, and fuzzies. But do you have to remove the rear seat back?

A word about this: I never was a convertible person, so despite being into Corvairs, I have little experience taking one apart.

I was told awhile back when I asked that the fuzzies go in before the glass is installed, and are removed after the glass is out.

The window rollers won't clear the window channel with the fuzzies installed.

Ok, the fuzzies are out, the doglegs are loose but still attached to the seat back, which is still tied onto the rear bulkhead panel somehow.

BUT, I see nothing in the way of open access holes on the inner panel. I DO see a cover plate with a dogleg mounting bracket on it.

Now what?

The rear seat comes out by taking the two screws out of the bottom, and lifting it off the hooks that are welded to the body. Sometimes they are stubborn, and need some muscle to get them to release.

I take it the bootlegs come with the seat back? May be best to do with the top down?
