hopefully this stays civil and focused on the topic at hand.

i'm finally gathering parts to re-nose the daytona.
while this is a true daytona, oem stuff is surely beyond my wallet's capacity
for this thread, i'd like input on who makes decent (and hopefully affordable) headlight buckets, pivots, doors, etc
what to look for, what to avoid, better to source from one vendor, or are certain items better/more affordable from various ones
i'm aware of a few names that make these items, but i'm hoping for opinions from those who have used them

if anyone reading this has items collecting dust that they are looking to part with, message me. perhaps my quest  will be a short one

i will likely start a different thread for the remaining pieces later on. stuff like seals, gaskets, vacuum components, wiring, etc

You can do one stop shopping with Mike at Dayclona.

He is a member here. Twocents

It started out as a rusty, green '69 R/T SE.

Now, it's well on it's way to being a Daytona.

A fake Daytona, that is.

mike is certainly tops on my list for where i hope to obtain most, of not all, of the needed parts
i thought i'd toss this out there in case someone had items they might want to part with
(or, in the case of my kansas pal, stuff they love teasing me with)
this scenario could be a win/win for both parties

i know mike prefers to run parts in batches, so hopefully he has some of this stuff in the works

Rick resales parts after a little R&R, from Gene Gregory, Ron Knifely, and other assorted sources....

Ernie,
 If you are in a time crunch such as trying to join us at the Talladega 2019 reunion reproduction parts might be the way to go?
But since you have an original Daytona that is rich in family history original parts might be the way to go?
So far I have been able to help with original parking lights and front side markers that even have the correct color factory over spray on them.
I have more small items that we need to talk about.
You are a long time contributor here and I hope others with original parts step up knowing they will be going to a good cause!
