MK IV rear bumper J emblem

None of the usual vendors have one in stock. Anyone have acces or know of one. Just the J emblem would do. Have mount.

Thanks,

Your best bet is to have one water jet cut from brass. Or while they are doing it, get a few as most of the cost is in the setting up.
Then sell the rest to cover your cost
They get an excellent result

Gus,
Have you tried with Cordell Newby ?

This was on my SS rear bumper when it came to me. It has the number B4195/1 and a WB logo on the back which I believe is the manufacturer Wilmot Breeden. I have since acquired an original SS motif.

If you don’t find anything better, well, maybe it can be restored.

Rob, post war cars had a decorative”J” in brass on the plinth in your pics, The plinth was chromed, but the J just in brass.
The J was about 1/8” thick. from memory So if one has a drawing , tracing or a sample it would be easy to have cut out and solder a couple of studs on the back, it was ornate with curliques at some places.

Ahh, thanks, I wondered why it didn’t have any remnant of a J, guess it fell off long ago.

Yes I had contacted Cordell first. He had sold his last unit.
