Howdy all,

 

I'm looking for an early, Serif script Roundel (or two) for the 2000CS resto. Anyone out there with a spare? ...hope so.

Thanks, Nick!

 

I have seen several with this silvery color. I'm not sure what causes this, or if that is the original finish... Otherwise, that badge is in good condition.

Mine came from a board member here from... Romania. 

 

You can try there! :D

Not trying to hijack this thread, but anyone have a lead on someone who can restore these older roundels?  Bill

Bill : did you ever find someone who could restore the serif roundel ? I have a couple for my TISA and prewar 327 ...

My restorer, Terry Forland, asked his retiring painter to do them, and he did a nice job.  I'll ask Terry if he might be able to handle some more.  Bill

Say hello to Terry! He donated a mint rear deck trim to my TISA countless years ago and I am so grateful!! It has been suggested to repaint them with Testors Model Paint but I suspect with airbrush skills or who has done them is a better bet than my attempting...

I redid mine with Testors model paint, then sprayed them with clear. I had a very poor one that I practiced on, first. It’s not cloisonné, but they came out acceptably.

The trick is thinning the paint and dropping it into the recesses of the Roundel; letting the paint flow and filling the recess. 

 

It takes practice. Brushing unthinned paint will leave streaks.
