1969 - 1973 911 - 912 Converting to a Soft Rear window

Vehicle Information: Model: 911/912 Targa; Year: 1969; Body Type: Targa; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.0 to 2.4; Total Mileage: 100000;

Can a 1969-1973 targa that came from the factory with the fixed glass rear window be converted to a soft rear window? I understand that in 1968 or 1969 the soft rear window option was discontinued. I also beleive that the cars that came from the factory with the soft window had an extra set of latches in the roll bar to tighen the window. So even if one could get the soft window hardware from a salvage yard could it be installed in a car that came with a fixed window if the latches are not present? Can the latches be retrofitted or is the roll bar from a fixed window targa not formed to accept them? What else would have to be done such as potential holes for snaps in the rear body? Any other thoughts on the possiblility of the conversion?
