Looking for a top quality restoration of your front bonnet badge - I can highly recommend Pamela David Enamels ( www.badgecraft.co.uk ).
My Bonet badge, although original was some-what worse for wear
There are new ones available form the usual suppliers, however on some of the Healey 3000 MkII badges there is no hyphen between the Austin and Healey, which was clearly there, certainly on my original. Thus decided to take the plunge and get Derron to refurbish the existing badge. It also has the advantage that it was shaped to the curvature of my front shroud. It does take some time and it costs about twice the cost of a new badge but in my view well worth it.
Their web-site claims that.... We manufacture one-off and small quantities of most types of enamelled badge. These are either reproductions of originals which are no longer manufactured, or to clients’ own designs.
Most badges were originally produced from metal dies which are expensive to make, so instead of stampings we use a computer-controlled engraving system to make each metal blank which makes one-off production practical. We do, however, own dies for Mk VI / Derby Bentley and several other marques to achieve the correct result. Although we make many very complicated badges there is a limit to what we can engrave and then shape; badges like the old R.A.C. badge are just too three dimensional for us to manufacture.
I would give Derron a call. I found him quite helpful.
I had to convince Derron at Badgecraft that I wanted to keep the cut-out section on top of the badge as I sized it to the cross section of the bonnet strap. Good that it is now chromed round the filed edges - something else I couldn't have achieved with a repro badge
