Hey guys, I plan on building a Daytona clone and I was wondering if anyone makes a metal rear window plug?

Most of us are using a Vega rear hatch as they are very close to the original shape and fit of a Daytona
Not very easy to find but easier than finding a real one

I know someone that can do metal one. He has a real one for template. He does noses for birds and Daytonas.

 It's been a flew years now but I called AMD about there rear window trim set and asked about a rear window. The gentlemen said that yes we have some so I ordered one. The glass I got from them was the same size and shape as the original. I don't know if I got lucky or not. Oh' I was also offered a choice of three date codes.

I also got a date coded correct Daytona rear window from AMD.  It was $995.00 plus shipping. Very nice piece!  I was told that if I wanted one that I had better get one now, because once they were sold out, there may not be another run made.

FYI to Interested parties:

I just got off the phone with AMD and they have one (1) Daytona Rear Window in their warehouse that IF they can find it has already been spoken for. 

HOWEVER:  The owner is thinking about making another run IF there is any demand.  SO all Daytona owners both real and clones, should call in and let him know that you are interested in buying a rear window.  If he gets enough calls he may well be motivated into making another run.  This may well be the very last chance to pickup a rear window, so call.  I actually have an NOS window, but plan on ordering one...just in case......

But how much difference is a clone car worth with a $600 Vega hatch welded in or the same car with $2000 worth of after market Daytona shaped parts welded in ?

All depends on the level of "correctness" you desire, or incorrectness you are willing to tolerate,  ...It's the same when you look at a vehicle that has been detailed incorrectly, or is wearing the wrong make or year parts, you deduct value accordingly, same as a vehicle detailed correctly and wearing the correct year specific parts, you pay more....

It is good to hear that Mark is considering another run of Daytona rear window glass. I bought the one I have because I was planning to do a 69 Daytona clone, but since I bought the stock car, and the 70 purple Charger R /T, I might not be using the window.  The purple car is going to be a 70 Daytona clone without the rear window plug, and I will be using a lexan window in the stock car so I can drill holes with plugs so I can put the speed wrench through the window to adjust the rear suspension.

Took me about 5 months to find a vega plug.  Looked everywhere, finally got one about 500 miles away at a wreckers, was $300 cdn give or take.  Think theres not many left.  Also make sure you get the right year think (and don't quote me) they are 73 to 77 vegas, newer ones have different glass.  Also the Monza, Astra all have the same back window think they call them H body chevys.  Good luck with the project.  Just the window trim from classic industries for a real daytona plug is just short of $1000.  I am very happy with mine.  I have lots of pics of the project right now on this site if you want to have a look.

This is true.     It should be mentioned that the reproduction glass will fill the hole, but won't be correct in shape versus the factory produced glass.      The factory glass has a slight bubble to it.   Visible when viewed side by side.

The AMD Daytona/500 moldings were templated from the original 69 Charger 500 I used to own.

The current AMD Daytona glass,has the correct curvature of the window that the originals do.

I have yet to see anyone post any threads on here or any of the other aero sites showing any fitment issues with the AMD window trim. As with any Daytona,and 500,the original plugs from creative,may vary,and the installation,was marginal at best. If the window plugs are fiberglass,or steel reproduction,those may vary as well. It is a tough product to offer because of what I stated. I saw them in person on Ted Stevens Daytona,and I thought they fit pretty well.
