M5 Rear Armour
« on: December 08, 2020, 06:46:12 AM »
Hi all,

I am currently making the rear armour for the back of my international. I am after the hole positions that bolt the rear armour to the body. I’m also looking for the hole spacings for the hood bows and how the hood bows fit as I’m sure that White and International are different.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Take a photo of the rear body/frame.  I would think that the M5 would have the 8 mounts (4 on each side) where the bed attaches.

This is from an M9A1. We have a bunch of cut up armor and top rail. We can probably eventually figure out the top bow spacing.
