Hi - just thought I would post my new front grille badge. I like suttle and am pleased with the result. It was a £3 pin badge with a bit of filing and some superglue! (Borrowed the file and also the superglue
)

P.S. Only washed her yesterday!

No probs. All I did though was walk into Evans Halshaw and they had it in a display cabinet. But also seen same badges on ebay for same price.

heard of this being done before mate. problem is they corrode very quickly. suppose its just a matter of putting another one on, or perhaps making sure it always has a coat of spray silicone on it.

i do think the smaller badge looks better IMO

Very, very good point. Passed me by that one! Thanks, I think they look better. Was looking for ages for a smaller badge but there all the large rear boot type. So this worked well for me.

Off to buy some lacquer...well, tomoz anyway!
