You would have a buyer here too if price point is reasonable.

I was just curious because I have a extra set and seeing how people ask for them, they seem pretty rare.

I'm sure if you can make them cheaper, that would be the thing to do. As Jim said, people seem to be asking for them. I wouldn't mind make a CAD model and sending it though my shop to make. I just don't know what kind of price to put on it or what the market would bring.

Thanks

Nope, but I'll keep looking. The picture I posted was from the WWW.

Here's another that includes a shim of some sorts.

It's going to be hard to keep paint on the surface of these where the door bolt latch hits. Could make them from stainless I suppose. Any thoughts?

Honestly, I just needs some strikers. If you are going to make some, make them out of whatever you want, I will buy some. I do not have access to a milling machine to make them.

Somebody on this forum has a pre 1980 Jeep CJ-7 with hardtop and rotary handles that they can take pictures of and maybe provide measurements. I know I would.

The post mentioned above is from my old thread about this. The demensions and a picture of the strikers are in that post. Somebody could make a decent amount of money if they made 10 sets of these and sold them to people on here...wink...wink. There is definitely a demand.

I did some machining on the striker plate this evening. One of the things you want this to do is to keep the spring loaded door latch from rubbing the paint off your tub. I cut a 45 degree angle on the end where that latch makes contact and left it about 1/8" thick. It could be thinner and be just fine as much as the latch clears. I'll get that sort of ironed out then make the part to fit that actually holds the door shut. There could even be a radius where the latch hits too, or round the tangent point off where the 45 meets the flat.

Why aren't you using channel like the original parts? I'm looking at that thin edge and thinking it's going to wear on the flat part of the striker. Plus that part design doesn't look original.

BTW, my 80 CJ7 would use these same parts.
