[DML] Plastic and Metal Door Guides (was: Door Oddity?)



According to the "Material Receiving Cards" for these plastic door
guides, the factory had only received 208 complete sets of these
guides as of Dec 16, 1981. Those wouldn't have lasted very long befreo
being depleted and then they would have had either to go back to
fitting the metal guides at either the factory or later in the states
at the QAC.
