side / rear door latch wanted

I'm looking for a side / rear door latch assembly off of a Thomas body bus. .

I'm not sure if all the bus body builders use the same door latch parts or not so here are a couple of shots of what I have:





I'm in the process of converting the front door to a one piece and would like to use it for this. Since it will be right next to the side handicap door, my main concern is that the outside handle looks somewhat close to the one in the photo(the rubber bumper in not required). Inside handle can be different than the one shown.

Hoping to find someone that has extra one sitting around.

Thanks.

Try and find Patrick in Fresno. He has tons of bus parts. I think he is a member here.

Thanks for your replies.

My mind must be slipping as I get older. Last night I remembered a heavy truck salvage yard about 30 miles away that I drive by occasionally. I drove up there this morning and sure enough they have a bus section and I was able to get a handle.

Might have to go back for some of the coach seats I saw in the shuttle buses though.....
