Clutching at straws probably, but has anyone got an enamelled grill badge for 1938/9 10/12, in reasonable condition, that they might be prepared to part with ?!
(In exchange for a suitably appropriate quantity of beer vouchers of course !)
Many thanks,
Sorry mate, I don't drink beer.
Greetings Chas, you are back from holiday then ?!

I may have a spare one for a 1948 14 would that be the same as you are looking for
Hello Neil, it is the red and blue enamelled one I am looking for. I think the post war 10/12/14s all had plain chrome badges as far as I know but if you do have an enamelled one by any chance, I would be very interested !
I was lucky and found one on ebay and only paid about a fiver for it. It didn't match the profile of my grill but with a bit of gentle persuasion I got it in shape, I then cleaned it with a wire brush, got my daughter to enamel it with some nail varnish and finished with some clear lacquer, maybe not perfect but I think it looks okay.
Hello Tom, that looks very good, your daughter made a good job of that !
I might give it a try. I have an all chrome one as an option, but would prefer to keep it looking as original as possible.
sorry not had the time to look yet busy getting escort ready for mot but what I have is not as the one in Tom's pic.
Thanks anyway.
