    Door Locks

    Before I stick a load of P38 in, can you just sanity check this looks ok for me.

    I've added a lock nut (away from AK's instructions) as I don't see what will hold the catch tight on the car?? But that has created a gap between the fibreglass and the metal strap.

    No, I'm not "repairing" it, I'm fine tuning its performance.

    Craig, I used a section of stainless steel tube where you have the lock nut. This allows the metal strap to sit closer to the fibreglass and it bolts up nice an tight.
