Broken Plastic Door Lock Guides? Look here! CNC

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

After seeing GrassStripFlyBoy laser that awesome panel I thought Id give some fabrication a go.

I did not want to pay $300 + dollars for our plastic door lock guides that seemed to warp and snap. Due to temp changes and constant pressure it snaps at the thinnest point right around the L shape turn.  Im sure age contributed because they are off my 2004 CTSW.

Is there anyone interested in a pair? I would love it to have some of my work in the community.

I could leave the screw holes out and you can trial fit them and drill yourself or you can try the current design. 

I am using 8mm stock and they are the exact thickness/match to my originals.  I was going to cut a white plastic cutting board for the actual part.  It seems to be pretty stiff stuff and could hold up to any passenger forcing that door handle.  Any other suggestions to materials?

Acrylic?  And then once you have them machined the edges can be lightly sanded / scraped with knife to slick them up, or use a chemical polish as well.
