Default Cafe Cabin entrance door latch receiver

Not sure if anyone can assist me with this or not, but, what the hell....let's see what I get.

When my 1987 Cafe was recently restored, the painter.....I assume.....lost the receiver that mounts into the side of the dash board bulk head that accepts the latch and locking mechanism from the sliding cabin door. Does anyone know where I might be able to purchase this receiver? Or, due to its age, will I have to have one fabricated?

Thanks Guys!!!!

Gave them a call. They said that they needed to see some photos. I told them, with a smile, if I could give you photos of it, then, I would have it to take photos of, no? LOL!!

Mike,

Thank you......I appreciate it! I suppose, maybe, the following....

1. A photo of the opening in the side of the dash bulkhead.
2. A photo, side shot, of the receiver that fits into the opening.
3. A photo, front shot, of the receiver that the door physically locks into.

Other than that, I think that should cover it. Unless you see anything else that you think may be helpful.

At the very least, that would help in having one fabricated, if necessary. Oh, with that said, maybe some measurement would be good. So, if necessary, I could provide the fabricator with the photos and some rough measurements.

Thanks Mike!!!!!
