Just a FYI:

I've looked through the archives - asked others... and we have all come up with zip...

My local club guru found the check strap bracket that is welded on the inside of the door frame is available at:

http://trf.zeni.net/TR6-TR250GB/index.php?zoom=1&menu=A&page=322&s_wt=1280&s_ht=720


Roadster factory....body trim and fittings - TR6-TR250 parts.....

Doesn't seem to be an exact match to photos I've seen of the spit bracket... but I'm buying one to see if it works.... It's worth $20 bucks to possibly save me a trip to a metal fabricator....

Hoping this works and will end up in the archives for others..... On the other hand - if it don't work - I'll feel pretty stupid.....

I made a pair that looked just like the originals for about 3 bucks worth of steel, a hammer, vice and drill. Oh, yes, the hack saw to cut out the blank.
Not sure that one will extend out far enough but it may be ok.

If you want to prevent the door from opening so far that the door skin hits the hood you can add a strap like they put on Jeeps.



Mind you, it wont click and hold.

The TRF Tr6 bracket works. I put one in my gt6 before I painted it. Worked great. I found the link somewhere, I know Doug Hansen had something to do with it. Kyle.

OK so I feel stupid.... TR6 bracket won't work.... way to big with wings that go the wrong direction..... back to the drawing board - and, as usual, going to have to follow Dan's advice.....eye rolling smiley
