Hi,
A few times now under cornering I've had the doors pop open and noticed that although the body tub has the fitting for the anti-burst catches but the door don't!
I'm guessing the doors have come from a saloon at some point. I've been to Canley classics and got the hook and reinforcing plate but I don't know where to drill the holes !

Can anyone give me any clues as to how to fit these ?
thanks

Should be dimples in the door frame edge, or was that on the B post?......

Dimples on the B-post (or the catches in this case).  No clues on the doors that I recall - took alot of careful messing about to work it out when I did mine.

ISTR that wedging the door parts in the fitted B-post parts and opening and closing the doors left scuff marks on the door frames that were important clues.

Is there a reinforcing plate in the B post for the catches.
I have seen the ones for the doors on Canleys but not B post.

I have just drilled through the 'dimples' on my B posts, there are captive nuts already in place, so no need for a plate.  And this was an estate rear tub...

They were there on even the very earliest production Heralds, long before the Convertibles came on the market.

Cheers,
Bill.

But not on my saloon rear tub .
This could be because it is from a 13/60 and/or it is most likely NZ assembled so they probably deleted them.
I stuck my hand behind the pillar and could only feel the dimples.
So I take it the part of the latch fixed to the pillar is not adjustable but the one on the door is?
If so what size holes are drilled into the body/door for these.

Hi guys,

I have a complete NOS rear wing for a saloon, but with the plates etc in place. I can send pictures and dimensions etc in the rear wing if you'd like, or if anyone is local (Warwick) and wants to check anything themselves then they are welcome to - only proviso's are;

1) You bend the panel, you bought it - and it's not cheap!
2) You do not offer to buy the panel from me - it's not for sale
