    David, How's about trying a pair of these ? Maybe you can taper the back plates to copy the original strikers. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Front-Left-Right-Door-Lock-Striker-Plate-for-Morris-Ambassador-Cars-Vi/264798027813?hash=item3da7314025:g:2q8AAOSwZNhfECBS

    Looking for nice pictures of garages

    3D Printed Hartwell Latch Parts

    3D Printed Hartwell Latch Parts

My reason for asking about Ryan's parts is there is no secondary spring in these ones that I have and they take two...

    Eddy, Irvings are beautifully engineered aren't they. It still amazes me that the basic twin engine design of these bikes is 60 years old. My ambition with this one will be a rather slimmer version rather like this Decker HRD which is a road going artwork, however I will be using the later...
