Default Correct Fitting 68-72 Chevelle Rear Glass

Can anyone provide a secure source for 68-72 Chevelle Rear window Glass(tinted). I have ordered (2) from Pilkington pieces and at the bottom edge in the middle where the glass would seal against the car its not formed as a true perfect curve. It sags in a spot or two. Please see attached. I tried a third piece from Fuyao and it appears it will fit but instead of being concave inward to the passenger compartment like an original its convex outward. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just throwing this out there because others have made this mistake - be sure you don't have the Fuyao glass flipped 180 degrees side to side . I'm sure you checked that, right?

Default Glass

That was my first thought but since the back of a chevelle is contoured from side to side the glass only fits one way. Thanks for the effort though.

Default Glass Update

Just wanting to provide an update for anyone else having issues with 68-72 A body rear replacement glass. Finally found that glass made by JDR International is some of the best fitting, highest quality glass I have ever seen. You will have to buy it through a distributor. Hope this helps others!
