[DML] Re: Plastic and Metal Door Guides (or, why *I* love Dave T's posts)

There certainly *are* more than 208 sets - my posting said that 208
sets complete sets had been received as of Dec 16, 1981 - the month
when the cars in question were assembled. More than ONE THOUSAND
additional sets arrived at the factory the first week of January,
1982. We have about 100 complete sets of all four pieces remaining in

Incidentally, most parts deliveries to the factory stopped about the
time they went into receivership, though these records were still
maintained by employees at the factory as indicated by on these cards.
Later today I'll post scans of these Material Receiving Cards - which
as the only known surviving records are better than numbers pulled out
of the air - in the forums at:
