Greetings all. A friend of mine is about to embark on his slatgrille restoration. He's owned it since the early 80's I believe. It is all torn apart and parts organized. He asked me to look it over and determine what parts are correct for the slat. Although I have much jeep knowledge and have been rebuilding/restoring them for 30 years, I could never focus on 'cataloging' serial numbers, DOD's, contract numbers, etc.
Could someone tell me the approx. DOD and possible serial number of this jeep since the only apparent number is from the toe-board gusset...18628.
My slat's gusset number is 4 digit and is serial #105557, DOD 12/19/41, so I'm guessing his would be Jan., early Feb. '42. Not a late slat because he has no glovebox. Any help appreciated.
