New Car Badge coming soon

Post by Wally2 » Thu Aug 25, 2016 8:16

Hi all,
As the 'old' car badge could not be produced any more due to the fact that the mould was lost in a fire at the manufacturers, we have gone for a new design for the new badge. It uses the same emblem as on the new clothing range.
We have received the first sample, the finish is in a synthetic enamel so that it wont 'yellow' with age as the old one did.

The badge is the same size as the previous one and will come with a threaded bar, washer and nut.
The badges are in production now and should be available by the AGM, with some luck we may have them for the Welsh Weekend.
Dean has put them on the Web Shop but as I say they are not available just yet, I will let you know when they are.

The new badge looks great, I think I have just the right spot for one.

Hi Mark,
Glad you like it, they will be £10 plus P & P when available, which is £2 less than the old one! Not everything gets more expensive!
Just had a note from the supplier saying that the manufacturer is going all out to get them to us for the Welsh Weekend!

It would be great if they were available for the Welsh weekend, I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one that could pick one up over the weekend.

Is it ready yet. Are we there yet. Can't wait, must twiddle thumbs. Seriously it looks really nice, and I will be picking one up (WHEN AVAILABLE) to go on "Barb."

My new badge arrived in the post.

Can I just say how classy it looks? It feels high quality and for £10 it struck me as a complete bargain.

Thank you.

Your 'old' Mini Moke Club badge is now a Collector's Item. Hold on to it.
