Thank you for posting those photos. So it's definitely not a TOBE, right? Does it look like it's ever been removed?

I looked it up I some how knew it because this Jeep was fitted with extra side footman loops and concluded that it must have served in the very cold Korean War 25-27I division HQ KMAG that was
KOREAN MILITARY ADVISORY GROUP

I haven't followed this post for a while and it's been fun catching up. In regards to your radio filterette...it's definitely a Solar. I wanted to show you some photos of my NOS Solor I have so that you may reference it if you wanted to restore yours.

Also, I have a stripped down Jan '43 MB (based on body number)and will need to compare your body number to mine as I'm not 100% positive of the serial number. It will be interesting to see how close our body numbers are.
