Front bumper; Riveted or bolted to the chassis

Yet another query.
How was the front bumper attached to the chassis rivet or bolt on a dj3a?
Thanks and regards.

When that I custom fabricated my missing front bumper (measurements to specs but out of much heavier steel than originally used) I riveted it on and posted a picture here, now disappeared thanks to photobucket. Pretty quick it was pointed out to me by another member that still had the original bumper on his dj3a that the front bumper on his was attached by bolts instead of rivets. Had I know that in the beginning I myself would have used bolts instead of the time consuming rivets that I forged and used. Hope this helps!

Doing ground up nuts and bolt restoration by almost entirely reconditioning original used or a few NOS DJ3A parts.
