Any aftermarket latches available? I have been searching. I need the front ones.

Would prefer metal, but anything is better than $300 for some latches.

This is one of my pet projects. Have the actual latch handle part 3D printed and functioning in a 924S for a year but I want to tweak the clip part. I'll get some pics up

$300!! ......100 each for the whole front catch.

Which bit snapped? Usually its only this part ...... https://www.rosepassion.com/en/cat/porsche-924-1980-924-turbo-coupe-manual-gearbox-5-speed/M351/bodywork-seals-and-rubber-elements/B2342/schemas/roof/I1150/bearing-bracket/P8318

Hopefully I am think about this wrong.

I am missing the levers? Also, does the deflector go "inside" the sunroof when putting it on? I need a deflector hinge too.

I found 1 lever in the glove box! I think I just need another lever and the triangle repair plates. Metal brackets are present.

Triangle plates are listed in my previous post. Can be bought from Porsche or Rosepassion for 2 each. Deflector hinge can be had from Porsche too. Or you can pay more by buying second hand from Ebay....

Thanks, the plastic stuff is pretty easy to locate.

I was just hoping their was some aftermarket aluminum. Seems like it could be done easy enough.

I'll see what I can come up with in aluminum if nothing can be found. Easy enough

Also inside the sunroof is a ridiculously heavy steel bracket. That will be made some other way as well
