Right members, I like everyone else on here love my MG. The worst thing was at the time of the terrible news of MGR going bust was also about the time my Badges started degrading (coincidence who knows?! lol)

I am proud to announce that I have arranged to get the MG logo to be restored even better than before for MGs.

People pay £40+ for the SV badge and can't fit it anywhere on their Zed. I can now provide members with direct replacement MG badges in the same style as the SV badge. The only difference is that my badges don't have 'XPOWER' on them. Engraving is a fortune. lol

My badges are made from 316 Stainless Sheffield steel, so they'll never rust! and are finished in a satin finish with a border line and the outline of the M and G lettering engraved into them. These WILL last as long as the car, if not longer.

To give you a an idea what they look like;


This is just about as accurate as it gets with an image, although I will post pictures when I receive the first batch back from the engravers.

These badges are priced at £25 each or £40 for a pair.

The technical bit...

They are the same size as the badge on the front of the ZR and ZS (54mm diameter and 4mm thick), they will also fit into the boot handle on the Mk1 ZR. This is mainly due to the fact that I only had my own car as a template for them but you can stick them anywhere you want. I am supplying adhesive with them but feel free to use what you want to stick them on.

If you are interested, please PM me and I will send you my address for payment. Due having been messed about on another forum, there is a cut off time for payment on these. You have until 11th of September to get your money to me for this batch. Then I will be sending the order.

With thanks,

Rich.

A great idea.

My badges have gone bad too. But going for some xpower springs with my available cash.

I hope they sell well but you still have some by the time I get round to changing mine!

any plans to do the rear one for the zs??

Unfortunately there is only one size badge. I've made sure it will fit on the front of two MGs but to get all different sizes would mean higher production costs because I have buy them in bulk. I will look into it if demand is high enough though.

If the Mk1 ZS badge is the same size as the front, these will fit in the hole no probs.

Right people, as promised heres pics of the first batch of badges at the pre-engraving stage, this batch has been sold already. As you can see I've measured them against the Original badges and the are a spot on match!
Excuse the fingers by the way. lol

Next to my boot badge.


On top of the boot badge.


Next to a spare badge I have, hopefully this is clearer for you guys to get an idea of size etc.


I'll post more pics when the engraving has been done.

All XPF members, heres the finished product from the first batch of Stainless Steel Badges.

These are what the second batch WILL look like. Hope this is enough evidence to place your order.

I know how difficult it is to trust someone with a new project.

Regards,

Rich.
