metal and plastic door guides? Did they make metal door guides with 
the same configuration as the plastic ones?

Shannon - There were actually three different configurations of door 
guides that I am aware of.  They are not interchangeable.  The first 
two versions are cast stainless steel, and fit specific door shapes 
(which also changed).  In the later cars, they shifted to the plastic 
versions with weld nuts installed in the doors.  The prior versions 
used sheet metal screws into the door skin.  As noted above, since 
they are not interchangeable, you really can't switch from one to the 
other without some modifications to the door skin and/or door
