Did Daytona fenders have the headlight buckets removed, or were they never installed?
good question. I was wandering the same thing.

 Dave Patik's article in Winged Warriors archives also shows a couple small tabs on the underneath side of the fender by the cowl.




If I recall, the "tab" that D. Patik refers too, it's only on the drivers fender IIRC?.... and while Dave is a great guy and has done a lot for the hobby, he's only human and has been known to make claims, like we all do, that are sometimes false/incorrect or just inconclusive observations or memory lapse

Yes you are correct. Its on the passenger side. There is a tab on the other side also for a splash shield I believe which I was referring to as the second tab. I did not mean anything derogatory against Dave here. Simply stating that I have never found anything different between a 70 fender and a Daytona fender other than the bottom and the side marker.





Daytona, I didn't mean to imply you said anything derogatory about D. Patik, sorry if it came across that way?...  I was trying to imply that sometimes when we quote information from individuals like Dave Patik and other "gurus", others sometimes take it as gospel or an end all to the topic at hand

The concern for a potential buyer is that they may pay top dollar for a very nicely done converted 70 Charger fender.  If I  were  paying the long dollar for an NOS Daytona fender, I would want to be dam sure that that is what I bought.

Just like a real 1969.5 Daytona hood versus a highly modified 1970 Charger hood, made to appear like a Daytona hood.

I thought the hoods was the same beside a couple of spot that was different in the stamping.

Link to a Daytona versus 70 Charger hood thread - http://www.dodgecharger.com/forum/index.php/topic,130780.0.html

In the past, guys would mess with the front of the hood fixing the obvious stuff. Looks like there are other holes and the 2 indents near the bottom. Another thing is the size of the 'scallops' under the hood to cowl seal.  Daytona = small.  70 Charger = large. 

Again - if you are paying the long dollar for a real part, it better be real and not modified.
