I'm confuzzled by those pics, those don't look anything like my door bottoms. Mine are 3 piece design and the ones above look to be 2 pieces.

Here's a pic of mine and the copy I made - looks like mine have an extra lip.

They are pretty easy to bend up, so if there is a market I can make up a batch.

AB is Atlantic British. I just ordered a pair last night out of desperation. I'll let you guys know if it will work or not.

Yup just got mine in and it's the one on the right. Same profile as my older-style split doors.

Good, glad you got the right ones. Wolfs version is a bit of a mystery, never seen a LR (Series, 90 or 110) door channel profile other than one of the two posted earlier.

So I started working on the door repair. It was pretty easy peeling the skin off the frame. My concern is the area where the hinge bolts to and the door retaining mechanism. Can anyone with experience tell me how you dealt with that area? Did you just cut it off and drilled new holes for the door hinge? It looks like there is a tube in each hole to prevent the channel from getting crushed when you bolt up the door. Thanks

I had a buddy of mine do the welding on my doors this past summer. We had to build a template/jig that would center each of the holes. This was to ensure the proper spacing and perpendicular orientation for the new hinge bolt tubes that were welded into the new door frames. Another challenge was to replicate the reinforcing plate on the skin side of the frame to which the tubes were welded. This plate had to be recessed into the flat of the door frame. HTH.

Cut the old plate and tube out, clean it up, and install it in the new channel.

I wish mine had been salvageable. Placement is still important, IMO its worth the time to build a jig.
