    WTB: Nakamae/Aerodramatics Door Latches

    One of the few remaining details for my interior... I might as well start looking now.

    I'd love the Nakamae locks (look like stock, see picture), but would take either. I'd also take just the handles, should someone have them. Aluminum only please. If the rumor that KGW is making them in aluminum is true, please let me know.

    PM me or matthew.f.lambert@gmail.com with your price if you do!

    Thank you!

    KGW = Chrome Plastic
    Aerodramatics = Chromed metal alloy
    Nakamae = Aluminum
    Carbon Miata = Aluminum

    Well, with that said... I guess Nakamae would really be best. I'm trying to keep everything brushed/satin aluminum...

    Thanks Randy.

    I was going to suggest those also, but I have a feeling those aren't aluminum. I don't think I've ever seen aluminum ones chrome plated, but it's very likely I'm wrong.

    They probably are kgworks. But the Google translated Japanese mentions something about aluminum.....

    I know this isn't really helping, but for the record, KG Works did make a billet aluminum set at some point. Proof from a Road&Ster magazine:

    (Google Translation: Billet door opener (L/R set) Because it is an important security part, it is billet manufacturing method rather than casting.)

    Very interesting, the first line does translate to "Billet door opener" L/R I guess they must have switched to chrome plastic at some point.
