does anybody know where to get latches for tube doors?? it would be great to find something like the ones RANCHO uses, I've been looking all over the place and I can't find them, any help would be apreciated !! thanks.
Have you thought about making a trip to your local junk yard?

thanks for the answers, I bought a set of latches from an old vw rabit and they work pretty good, they are similar to the ones used in hot rods, the advantage is that i can get them locally for less than 5 bucks each, and since I'm going to be selling the tube doors its a big advantage. thank you.
I found a small latch online. easy to mount. The only problem is they are intended for a much larger striker, but i just made a quick shim out of plastic tubing, it has to be replaced a few times a summer, but works fine and i didn't have to remove the existing stock striker. It's not pretty, but works. I'll take some pictures of the final product when i get the chance, (The doors have been through a few iterations sense these photos were taken).
