The final bit of brightwork

Post  Red Riley on Wed Dec 03, 2008 7:53 am

I have managed to find almost every shiny bit for my 68 Elf resto, even finally found a good grille badge, but I haven't been able to come up with a bonnet center trim. The one I have is cracked through at the center pin. I could probably have it welded and re-chromed, but I would much rather start with a better piece. Does anyone have an extra one in their spares bin?

a while back the riley motor club ( http://www.rileymotorclub.org/ ) had a batch remanufactured and sold them for £50 each but i don't know if they have any left

the hornet one is different and never been available new so it's a case of scouring ebay and the autojumbles and the trick is to find one that still has it's mounting bolts attached although they are fixable

it is possible to have them chromed even though they are mazak and i had mine done a few years ago and they got most of the pitting out except the deep ones - still looked miles better

best of luck chaps santa
