I have managed to get access to new repro Bonnet Spears and these are better than the originals. They have improved fixing screws which won't break off as per the originals. Check out "Red Riley's" comments.
Re the badges, good front ones are very difficult to find and although the boot badges don't suffer from stone chips, the chrome often becomes crazed. Best bet is to recondition your originals. Mk1, 2 and 3 up to 1968 were stove enameled where as the later mark 3's were painted. If you manage to find original earlier badges say on eBay, I have see these go for more than the cost of reconditioning, £60.00+

I'm waiting for the next batch of bonnet spears for other register members so if you are interested, let me know and I will keep one back for you. Cost is £50.00 + packing and postage.

I searched for three years for a decent Front Badge unsuccesfully. most I came across had chips in the enamel.I removed all my enamel and painted it with Humbrol model enamel paint. it was the nearest match I could find) As for the bonnet spear I have puchased a new one like Elf service is offering. They are well worth the money. Don't you think so?
