Rear latch cover set

Does anyone here have a rear clam latch cover set you'd be willing to part with? I'm pondering building a working latch back there but don't even have the churchkey slots. Fibersteel wants $106 for them but I figured I'd try here first.

I also need the door striker plates; my kit doesn't seem to have. Are these Beetle items?

Finally, windshield wiper frame. I've got the early (pre '68) set that won't fit, and the later Superbeetle set that won't fit. I have the correct motor but I need the part that bolts to it. Anyone have a spare they feel like selling?

Thanks all.

I’m pretty sure that I have a set that I bought from FiberSteel still in the bag they came in. My car has molded carb doors and since I added leather straps so I don’t think they will fit anywhere. I will look around for them tomorrow.

I will sell them for only $104.99 [8D]

Just kidding, I don’t remember what I paid for them, but just make a fair offer.

Sorry for the delay, I had to dig around my garage to find them. It seems like there is no way to PM a photo, so I’m uploading a photo here. I thought I would snap a pic to make sure we are talking the same part. Return PM on the way.

So, about the door strikers. I know it's a noob-as-hell question but I don't seem to have these in my boxes of parts, and the build manual is silent on the matter. I'm guessing I need something like this:

But it's just a guess. If someone with a Beck (or TR) car could snap a pic of their door strikers (that's the part on the body, not the door) and post it here I'd be in their debt.

Hey Ed,
Here's a few pic's of my drivers side door striker/latch. BTW cool stuff you're doing. Gotta get up your way to check it out in person.

Thanks. Those look like just bolts or posts. I need to source them. Now I'm not sure where they're from originally.

I'll look through my parts again to be sure I don't have.

Still looking for this part. I put bolts in the other day and they almost sorta work. But they don't really work (too thin) and anyway I want the actual parts; I've fabbed-up enough stuff!

I emailed Brad at Special Edition but haven't heard back yet. Are these the same part on the Beck and Vintage both?
