Being an AMD dealer where I work I have had nothing but positive feedback on their glass, and we have sold several sets. I have seen it in person and it is very nice. I got my dad a drivers door glass for his 71 demon, it fit nice and it looks great. We have also installed a pair of door glass in a 71 cuda with the same results. If you need a place to purchase it check out our website. I'm sure we have the best price out there, or at least you can compare to other dealers. www.restorationperformance.com

I put an AMD windshield in a '72 Demon for a customer, went in ok but it seemed like it was just a touch too tall.....

I have yet to see an aftermarket part that was exactly the same though so with that in mind it was great.

Having worked for Pilkington North America, AMD doesn't make the glass. It comes out of a plant in Taiwan. Most is pretty good, but like all glass it's a crapshoot. The E body door glass is absolutely terrible. Tempered parts (side glass) seem to have the most issues.

I was told to be careful also. New repop glass can be thin and wavy . I bought a front window from AMD for my 68 Dart went to put it in and it almost fell through the opening . After a couple tries ,we measured and found out indeed it was too small. Got to checking code #'s and calling Amd they had sent a Duster window Marked Dodge Dart. So they sent another window. Went to put it in and again the same problem. This time code was Dart and label was Dart.
Called AMD again we both agreed it was getting too expensive for them to eat shipping. I called one of the local window installers . Had a front window put in no problem.
