    This is a great idea and easy fix. Lowes didn't have the 5/8" lock so I bought the 9/16" lock and used a heat gun to loosen the plastic and hammered the lock in place. No drilling required and now it's press fit in place.

    Welp. My nearby Home Depot didn't have big enough step bits, nor the right locks.

    Amazon to the rescue. Cheaper, too.
    They'll be here tomorrow

    Long time ago but can I ask on a long shot did they work for you?

    You have a link?

    I knew there was a company making replacement bins with metal doors but not separate metal doors.

    Could be an option depending on cost.

    The only one I knew of doing stuff like this was Mob Town Offroad but since they closed I think you might be out of luck.
