    Targa top latches

    Hello,

    I am about to embark on another Opel adventure. Several years ago I had a Targa top put on my '73. The memories have faded enough that I am ready to do it again, this time to my '71 (with "73 wheels). Before the project starts this autumn, I need to collect a few parts. I'm trying to find latches to hold the rear of the top in place. The part that was used on the original Lenk kit was a BMW part:

    The parts numbers are:

    BMW 54 31 1 932 777

    BMW 54 31 1 932 778

    They are proving to be a challenge to find, both in the US and Europe. Is there anyone out there that has done this conversion and what part did you use for the latch?

    Thanks,
    Larry

    Thanks for the ebay lead on those latches. I was able to find them from a classic BMW website....at ~$230 each. Just ordered from en ebay seller for about ~$150 for the pair. Will see if they are actually the correct part.
