MCI 9 Door Latch
« on: March 20, 2009, 06:19:04 AM »
With the help of great Friends and good Whiskey my door latch project is almost done.
I just have to install the inside door panel when it stops snowing (first day of spring).

I couldn’t add my picture’s to Jacks post = http://www.busconversions.com/bbs/index.php?topic=544.0
Here they are.

The inside skin was cut off and made a good pattern for the new one. ;D

Ed,

Looks good!

What lock mechinism did you end up using?

New or salvaged?

Looks Great ED!!!!!


I notice that you have attempted to keep the door vent.  Are you going to put a grate/screen in the wood panel for the air to draw out?


I had thought about it and then opted to blocked it off and foam the whole thing ( on JR advice, thanks JR)

I haven't decided on the inside pull handle either.

How are you gonna fasten it too?

Look great!

Look like it came from the factory or OEM.

Thank you for sharing your photos.

Great job, I'm thinking of tackling mine later this year sometime if I can make more progress on other things first. The P.O of my bus put on a house type full handle (the long fancy scroll type about 8-10" long with the thumb button!) which he regretted and I now really need to replace it. It latches but no locking.

I'd be really interested in part numbers, vendors and prices if you don't mind sharing. Jack didn't list them in his write up did he?
