    Too bad you didn't order from Jeff at 521 (on this site) cuz he gives us a discount...

    Crap, called Summit because I ordered the windshield on 3/02 and it still hadn't shown up.

    They said it was backordered until June! #*(%&@)!#$.

    So much for getting to play with the car this spring...

    Got a message from AMD confirming that they are all out of the clear on so I guess I'll go ahead and change my order with Summit to the tinted one...

    For my 63,

    I ordered an AMD from Summit. It was the least expensive from the research I did.
    Free shipping too and it fit great, I can't see any distortion either.
    My regular glass guy installed it with a new gasket I had.
    Now I'm afraid to drive it.
    Here in Arizona Chipped windshields are almost a yearly occurrance, Three in my Dodge Ram, Two in the wifes Highlander, Two in my Daughters van.

    Good to hear. Just got off the phone with them and changed to the tinted one that was in stock.

    I did lots of research as well and they were as much as $500 shipped! :angry1:

    I've been told that all the gaskets are nowhere near the original in quality. That being said, which one is the best gasket available.

    Mine was not salvageable.

    just installed a amd one on my 71 RR, The installer was very impressed with it, it was pretty heavy and he mentioned how alot of the aftermarket companies out there are running thinner(cheaper) ones

    I used PPG glass for my 68 Charger. Ended up paying $120 for the glass and like $65 for the gasket from Steele - Installed it myself
