Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

got the badges today, coudnt wait to open the package and WOW !

They are superb quality, few pics below which do not do them justice, but
tomorrow I will be at Steve's to make sure they fit snugly in the grille and will take some more pictures with his camera which is better than miine.

These badges could no doubt be used for other things, the name and logo are slightly raised and as above the quality is excelllent, made from metal and quite weighty, they are different colours its just not evident from the pictures due to the light

When I know they fit they will be posted out to all who ordered within the next few days.

Just been to Steve's, the badges fit fine in the MG7 grille and he was gobsmacked with the quality so alls well and a few pictures of one fitted in the grille are below.

There is a very small issue to overcome and that is the badge recess in the grille is slightly concave across the centre, whereas the badges are flat so it will need some adhesive at the top and bottom of the badge for a nice fit, this wont be seen at all.

You will notice that Steve's chrome trim is not yet fully fitted at the bottom but it does fit fine, it just needs pushing home and clips inserting at the back

I will post them out tomorrow, when you get them can you please leave your comments on this thread and I will then gauge interest for a similar run with a facelift style logo in the same shape.

I am even tempted to get some standard facelift badges made in the traditional shielld shape as these badges are much better quality than the OEM ones which have always been disappointing to me.

What's the state of play on the rest of the bits?
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

Radioguy is shipping to Steve so just waiting for them to arrive, we then need to do a test fit to see if there are any issues or bits to get before everyrone launches into it

Hi Rob,

Would your man be able to produce the Rover badge for the Tourer tailgate? These are prone to fade and can only be replaced by replacing the complete plinth. Would be nice if an adhesive badge could be produced that could be stuck over the existing faded one.

:cheers:

Is that a Mk 2 badge? The Mk 1 badge is the Rover logo.

:cheers:

I am not sure what size it is, I will go and measure it. I recall that this issue has been raised on the OC side, and was IIRC unresolved. :cheers:
