I tried a combination of original latch plate and new striker plate without the packing plate and that worked very nicely so I left well enough alone. The welded original latch turned out well.If I want the new latch plate, I am sure I would need the packing plate also for a start.

The packing plate goes on the shut face side but they go between the aluminum door finisher and the shut face pillar I'm pretty sure. If I remember correctly I used a few choice expletives while getting the proper alignment and fit.

Hope this helps,

Should this packing plate be on the shut face side where it could help move the striker in and out for an adjustment or should the plate be in the fender well next to the threaded plate? Per my old parts I need to start bending the reproduction stuff. Sticking the packing plate against the shut face would help.Thanks,Ken Freese65 BJ8Note to Len- thanks for the picture, but that is not the part that is worn on my car.
