[DML] Re: Plastic and Metal Door Guides (cost and weight)



The plastic ones certainly weigh less, and weight is always a factor.

The records here show a *cost* for the metal guides as $43.86 per set
of for, and the plastic guides at $6.34. Even at a hoped annual volume
of 10,000 cars per year, that's a savings of more than $375,000 - so
cost was undoubtedly a factor.
