Got a 68 Road runner with some serious upper rear window rot. I don't think it would be too difficult to make a new channel for the roof skin but there's a section of the rear crossmember 4-6 inches wide that's nearly gone and would be tough to duplicate. I see AMD has the rear bow for the Charger. They obviously don't interchange but would the middle flatter part be close enough of a match that it could be sectioned in? I called AMD and they said no reg B-body rear bows were being planned.

I'm talking about the rear brace under the roof skin for a 68 road runner.

I'm sure someone out there can supply you with that... I have replaced those areas on cars before vs replacing whole brace and skin. Put a wanted ad up and I'm sure you'll find something. I have a front piece, but no rears.

I looked at the one on the Road Runner this morning and it looks really close. The side pieces are obviously different but it's a basically a straight channel with a little curvature on the ends. I'd love to have one in my hand to make a comparison with!

I'm sure it will work for no more than you need.
