No Slats in my collection.

My Dec '42 NOM MB and Aug. '44 MB are riveted but my May '43 MB is welded. I left this alone during my restoration.

Same goes for the battery tray. All the holes line up and have no rivets, the welds are along the edge.

I have no documentation as to why but all three jeeps were very complete and unmolested at the grill mount and battery tray locations.

Hope this helps.
