I'm sure Tom W will be along to answer that in a second. Thanks for the photos, looking forward to more, it's interesting to see your body handles were placed 'upside down (f mark wrong way up) like mine were, I'm having a dense moment here guys but is that the only orientation they can go in with the bolt holes?
Did you find any unit markings so far or is yours an end of war auction jeep? On the left hand side is the S behind the hood number or on the cowl, very interested to see if you turn up anymore markings such as perhaps an auction stencil on top of the cowling, I sent my tub off to the blasters before sanding back the cowling to check and regret it!
