Making a long story short: Bumped into a guy with an older 380SE at the gas station. He mentioned that I was wasting my time replacing the chain rails with plastic OEM parts, and I should be using Aluminum rails. Furthermore, he stated these rails are not available through Mercedes, but only to shops through very few suppliers. Anybody got any info on aluminum rails or ever used them? My local MB dealer parts dept has no idea of what to look for. I have a 1989 560SEL with 127k miles on the original plastic rails, and I am going to change them with the chain and tensioner in short order.

1989 560SEL
1971 Cutlass convt. (sold)
1978 Olds Toronado (sold)
the rest are boring
