Thanks Fenton - it helps. I can figure out the various upper pieces from that.
But that large shape at the left end of the 18” long, horizontal piece of bar stock, remains a bit of a mystery.
My impression is that the door post has two castings mounted to it - the upper and lower - and so the door latch fits into them.
Rob, will this help AA 73918 door

I'm modelling one of these 9' IH Ann Arbor cars, and can't find sufficiently detailed photos of the door hardware: specifically the door latch mechanism bits and pieces. Here is a link to a Jim Parker shot in the list photos section: https://realstmfc.groups.io/g/main/photo/43681/38?p=Created,,,20,2,20,0 Wondering if anyone has a higher resolution photo of one of these series of cars, or of the type of door hardware used.
Thanks in advance for any help,
