I'd appreciate any leads on this, hoping to find a ready made solution as opposed to a custom fabrication.

Also, RITX, these aren't the prettiest or hardiest, but they look like they'd work.

Very clean work Steve. I'm interested to see these latches... The aluminum turned out great!

Here's a pic of the temporary drawer faces.
Little slam latches worked out pretty well.
Looks like I don't have enough upholstery scraps from old interior panels for the fronts so I think they'll end up 1/4 alum painted black....or similar.

Gnome, I kinda just did these by sketch and on the fly. If anyone would like to see sketches and dimensions, I'm happy to post.
