My California cover arrived but I don't think I got the right one.  There is no cut out for the wing.  There is no way I could stretch this out to cover the car.

Gotta read the fine print on the box:

"*Must remove wing before putting on cover for best fit"

Did you order through their site?
I don't see an option for a Daytona when choosing a cover from their dropdown menu.
Superbird does show in the dropdown for Plymouth though.

Great.

Makes me wonder about the one I have sitting here still in the box.

I was waiting to take it out of the box when my car comes home from paint.

Hasn't happened yet.

Yes, there was a Daytona option on their website.

Guess if it's wrong, I'll just keep it for my other '69 and reorder. shruggy

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.

I sent the pics and CC Stuart.  If this is the correct cover it is far to difficult to install for me.

I would let your car "air out" a while for like a month if not more before you put the cover on.  You dont want the cover going on not fully cured paint otherwise it will ruin the cover and your paint job at the same time.  Remember, automotive paint hardens from the outside in so even if it seems dry to touch, it still is not thoroughly hardened yet.

At this rate I'm going to die of old age before I get my car back anyway.
