Default Repo Rino Grill

Found this on IFSJA (International Full Size Jeep Association). Guy still makes them. They are fiberglass. He can make them with or without the badge and also make the pie pans to replace the military turn lights. Cool! I chose to go with the bare grill and add a repo bolt on period correct emblem. Obviously I need to paint it. Probably satin black or olive drab.

I have a steel one that I didn't install because it made access to the hood latch pretty difficult. Did you guys run into that problem? How did you solve it?

The grill guard also interfered with it, IIRC.

I have a chrome one too, but couldn’t bring myself to painting it.

I just use the spring hood latches on the fenders.

I'll be keeping the hood latch-- too absent-minded.
