The only spares I have need lots of planishing! What are your silver-smithing skills like!? :D

All my badges are silver on black with a slightly curved, transparent front face. What sort do you plan on having made?

Typical.......
Just this afternoon I ordered caps and centres from SJ Sportscars (was looking for something else to buy along with a wiper wheel box to ease the P&P costs).
Apparently the caps are repro, but the centres are OEM.
A pretty penny, especially when x4, but then the wheels are quite visible.
Got to be better than the bodged Ford centres I adapted 35 years ago though.

Glad you mentioned SJ has some original centres Tony! Just ordered some. In the process of having my wheels refurbed at the moment.

Correct.
I should have 4 of these being delivered today. Pattern parts, but will be a lot closer that the modified Ford centres I was using.
Your first link is the centre badge / cap for the later speed line wheel, retained with a circlip.

Santa delivery :) :)

Very please ( although I haven't tried the cap for size into a wheel yet !
The Logo's are a little smaller than I expected, but are quite thick with domed upper surface. Certainly look standard and IMO, worth the extra over a ding dong label in this instance.

Received my badges yesterday as well! They are exactly like my very tatty originals. Hoping to get my original caps re-anodised.
