Default Boot Emblems

It seems the V12 emblems for the 1994 XJS can no longer be sourced. Mine has faded considerably.

Are there any good ways to get it back to its former glory?

My 95 has had at least two sets of brand new emblems within the past 5 years. Car is garaged and delicately hand washed. They turn like this after a year. Not sure if anyone makes a good, long lasting version. My replacements all came in Jaguar bags, if I recall .

Chrome Vinyl from your local vehicle graphics agent.

They will trace it out and can make stickers that look like the real thing.

Ain't that the truth. I paid a vastly over-inflated $70 for a replacement "XJS" from JagBits (an expensive place, as I have come to realise), attached it on Jan 1, 2017, and less than two years later the chrome has completely rubbed off. I paid £12 for a "V12" from David Manners about the same time, which is doing fine. A little worn, but fine.

Oh, and David Manners no longer have that part, BEC22058. However, I have found an expensive one (cheaper once VAT is removed) from Germany, HERE.

Taken about this time last year (May 2018). It lasted fine up until then.

November 2018. Notably worse than the "V12" mark.

Taken in Feb this year. Almost all gone.

my boot emblem it came over with the car around 1985/86, maybe because it was supposed to be a prototype Cabriolet, modded by Aston martin, around 80

/83! but never went any further!
the bean counters and maybe some administration types, Jag .and AM was in financial problems around that time!

The first pic is taken in the small historic post-station town of Kumagawa, on an old route linking Kyoto to the Sea of Japan. A charming little village, very well preserved, and not touristy. Also very quiet....
More details and more pics can be seen in my post on that road trip, HERE.

Contact LeRoy Sorrel in Jacksonville, FL. He stocks Jaguar parts. I bought a set of rear emblems from him for my XJS. ( [email protected] ) His business is on West Bay street. I've met him and have been using his services for over 5 years.
