Re: Enamel Bonnet Badge

Bonnet Badge - now in production! The set up tooling has been paid for and the first sample is being produced. Once I have received it I will be checking that it is 99% visually correct and then it will be all systems go! I am hoping that these might be available in time for Santa to deliver.

Re: Enamel Bonnet Badge

I am waiting to hear the final cost! Sadly 200 plus is a cheaper price, but I think that 100 is the most that this will bear. Only about 4% of production used this badge...... (I may be wrong, but certainly relatively few). To do this in metal would be around 70 pounds I think whereas these should b...

Re: Chrome Bonnet Badge

THOUGHTS please I have had a response from the third potential production company - they do not think they could make these bonnet/hood badges in metal/chrome but would use ABS plastic instead. That has the advantage that it will not bubble as the chrome can over time (and keeps the price towards th...

Re: Build date

Christopher Kenneth Smith should be able to help more precisely but an estimate of August 1980 based on some of the TR8 VIN records I hold.

Re: Enamel Bonnet Badge

Some good news, I should have a production sample in 3-4 weeks. It will be a chrome bevelled edge with a resin domed top and 3M adhesive backing. It will be visually similar but not made exactly the same way. Price is lower too and should be around the £40 ($50) - £50 ($75) mark rather than to £75 /...

Re: Enamel Bonnet Badge

Sadly they are not able to remake this badge. I have a few other avenues to explore................
Things are looking more positive with another potential supplier - especially as the cost is likely to be lower! More details later.
