What latch are you talking about? Can you post a picture?

You use to be able to buy a reinforcement kit for the door latch, I don't see any available in my area any more but you might find some NOS that might still be out there. The only other way is to take to a body shop so the doors can be welded up and a plate made for reinforcement.
