Is there a difference in quality between this stuff from Autocity and the AMD stuff. All my glass could benefit from replacement but its not completely necessary. Door glass is scuffed but doable. I have no quarter glass. Rear is in fair shape. Windshield has to be replaced as its cracked and not even original.

Other members said these guys are best so I used them. (They were right!) https://shop.pilkington.com/    Thickness tint and shape like Mopar.

That is the glass I used.  Not sorry.

Pilkington has made OE glass for vehicles worldwide for decades and their quality has always been second to none.
I would not hesitate to use one of their windshields and would in fact be prepared to pay extra for one.
Lots of replacement autoglass is made cheaply in SE Asia/China these days and unfortunately, whilst the glass may meet the Standards required, the fit and finish are often lacking.  

Ps: DW715 is the item number you should quote when sourcing the front windshield

I see others praising Pilkington, so I assume they made some changes. I had a Pilkington put in my 69 about 12 years ago. It was thinner and leaked at the top and lower corners. The tint band was thinner like an old windshield, but was blue. I picked up an AMD and it fits like the original. It leaked a little in the lower corners at first, but it sealed up over time. The color of overall tint matches the original glass with that dark greenish look.
