Could someone please post a photo of a Super bonnet badge in original condition? I need the photo to be of good enough quality for me to see the colours.

Do you know that they did some in red and gold and some in black and gold?March 20, 2008 at 5:45 pm #17648
I vaguely remember something about this. Do you know whether the change was date-related? Or were both used, e.g. from two different suppliers of the plastic inserts?
Any pics of a Super bonnet badge in excellent condition would be much appreciated!!

Here’s a pic of an old one I’ve just dug out for a pic. I also think it was something to do with the colour of the car – that had something to do with the colour of the badge.March 21, 2008 at 12:24 am #17653
Many thanks for that Jase!
I think the other type had red somehow mixed with the silver – if anyone has a pic of one it would be great.

whe i apinted my super badge, i painted silve in the grove ( from the back) and then u can lightly wipe it, as u wont wipe whats in the grove, then once tht dryed i paiinted an oragey red over the top. and the black and gold on the top half of the badge. :lol:

i can take a pic for you if u want, but when i glued it in, the glue desolved the paint in places and it looks rubish now lol.March 28, 2008 at 5:24 pm #17702
Thanks for the reply – good idea to wipe away the excess, maybe even polish tthe back with T-cut afterwards before applying the red.March 28, 2008 at 5:58 pm #17704
Nail varnish is good to cover the back of the badges and pillar badges. it covers very well. That is my excuse for having a bottle or two of nail varnish in my desk drawer!April 6, 2008 at 5:55 pm #17758

How much you got to spend, considering the deluxe front panel badges are now selling on ebay in excess of £100!!! Very popular in Scotland apparently. :wink:April 7, 2008 at 8:40 am #17761

Renovated this badge yesterday by cleaning off old paint, repainting with acrylic paint for the red and enamel plastic model paint for the black and the silver. The red isn’t the exact shade but I don’t think it would look out of place on a car.April 14, 2008 at 4:30 am #17817
