I believe that Mk11 Ruby’s did not have check straps but a metal apparatus on the bottom adjacent to the A post.
I am always interested in any information about Rosengart details or current owners.

Hi Graham

The original door checks are a rubber and metal disc on the end of a curved rod about 6 inches long which bears on the inner sill under the floor (See picture from the body parts list, publication 1521).  The door attachment is via a triangular plate at the lower front, with a couple of lugs and a split pin.  Most of these originals have rotted away or been taken off in times past and never replaced.  I seem to remember one of the cherished suppliers making a batch.

Cheers, John.

If noone else has before I get home, I'll take some measurements. Do you have the steel plate fixed to the door, or do you need dimensions for that too?

I never made it to technical drawing class, so forgive the back of an envelope sketch...

   

   

   

The washers appear to be a collection of old junk?

This is what you need.

But I never seem to get the time to do the brazing?
