Rotary door strike plate-hard door

I just purchased some new to me hard doors and hard top for my '79 CJ 7. I bought the Jeep without doors doors or a top, (but it did come with a bikini top).

The doors I acquired have the original rotary style handle and from my understanding the doors are designed to simply "slap" closed over the tub and the tub is supposed to have a strike plate attached to it to protect the sheet metal of the tub when the latch "slaps" it. Does anyone know where I can find one of these semi flat metal strike plates? Or does anyone have an idea how I can fabricate one myself? From what I have seen, it just looks like a flat piece of metal kind of rounded off on one side where the latch strikes it and has a small plate on the back side.

This what you are looking for, I think they could easily be made out of a piece of flat stock steel.

My Jeep didnt come with hard doors either. In my case the door strikers above are used for my soft doors but didn't work for the hard doors when I put them on this winter. They stuck to far out but this could be something I did? I haven't gotten around to puting a stiker plate on but my thought was to put piece of angle iron bent and cut to fit. Maybe a spacer behind it to get the gap right.

I have some of the old style strikers for those type of doors. Looks like a rectangular plate - two screws fasten the strikers to the body. Send me a PM.

Yes, GPER, those are the strike plates I am looking for. I guess I will have to go the fabrication route. I am beginning to believe all owners of old Jeeps are really just engineers at heart.

How about $25.00 per pair including USPS? I will use an envelope with delivery confirmation. I know I have a couple pair of these in a box at home.

Sam,
I'll pay $25.00 for a pair of these. It will save me the time of trying to fabricate them.
