First off... Im new here, HI! Very Happy

I just nabbed a NOS Arctic Grill cover and hardware kit. Ive only seen a small handful of photos of the cover actually installed on either Korean war era or modern restorations. None of which give me a clear shot of where the mounting hardware is installed. The tech bulletin leaves a lot to be desired... I kind of assume its just naturally where the spring stretches with some tension.

Shot in the dark, Just wondering if anyone has any reference photos of the clip/spring install locations in the wheel well before I start drilling?

Based on the instructions there is a lot of latitude given for their final location with no precise or detailed illustration or verbage offered in the instructions. Depending on wether you are reading TB 9-2855-2 or PM-6939 they even suggest just hooking the two fender springs to each side's fender support channel. It is obvious that no two jeeps would be identiclle.

PM-6939

Thanks for the photo. Ive seen the springs fastened directly to the support channel but for my use it seems like it be a good way to loose a spring and chew up the paint. I guess I will just see where it naturally lies on my Jeep and go from there.
