The rear badge was looking tired, so I replaced it.
But in the spirit of wanting to stay original, I actually now have 2 badges.
My original badge I sent off to a guy who refurbishes them, and then encases it in a clear resin. This way it stays bright & shiny and doesn’t dull, especially when you accidentally cover it in wax/polish. This is the badge I have on the car right now.
But I also managed to track down a brand new original badge – these are becoming rare, so I have put it in storage.
I also had a one of a kind keyring made up [thanks again Gavin!]
How cool is this!
