Default knob- original or not?

Hello.

I have these litte knobs all the way around my cargo bed for my C15A. I believe these are non original and a post war add on? The metal hooks I presume is original.

just want to make sure befor I remove them and weld the holes up.

So ..original or not?

Please do not remove the knobs. I am sure they are original, used to hold tarpaulin securing straps (rubber or leather with a round hole and slit to go around the knob). I'm sorry but I can't find photos right now to support this.

Generally speaking, when the welding is crap, it's orginal!

Hi Hanno

Great point on originality, I'd add don't clean of the weld splatter. When I was restoring the HUP it became clear that there must have been a pecking order in the welding assignments. If it was not going to show, it went to a new welder, if it was going to be something that showed or was critical it was done by an experienced welder.

Cheers Phil
