Fiberglass Hard Half Door Question

I have a set of fiberglass hard half doors. They fit the door opening perfectly, but the latches are wrong. I can't seem to ID the door or the latches to see if I can get a replacement latch to make this setup work.

I have full hard doors I use in the winter, so I need to make a 'non-permanent' fix to make them bosh work.

Here are the pics of the half doors.

Thanks, Tim

So, can I get a different latch for the door or a different latch for the tub to make it work?

you may be able to find a aftermarket/ kit car doorlatch that will work with them,we have them over here in the uk but not sure if you have them in the states.. you could try to fit a later lock mechanism but you would need to be good at fibreglassing and fab.

"early cj"?? I'm assuming you mean a 76-81 CJ7, with this style of latches. An "early CJ" is a 1946 CJ2A, which these doors obviously won't fit.

yup sorry but i thought it was obvious as it was a question about 7's not a CJ2A.

The early '7 doors didn't use a latch, just use the door jam. I'm hoping you can unbolt the door latch from the tub and bend a piece of metal to fill the recess in the door jam. My cousin has the same issue with his '83 and that's what we're going to try.
