Glue has failed, found out when I caught it with a polishing cloth and managed to fold the foil, anyone got an unwanted spare in good nick?

The one that says 'TRIUMPH' slightly italicised?

Any preference for embossed or flat?

I never saw your reply Alun, same day I posted as well! Must thank the person after the boot badge for reminding me though.

This is the current badge, not sure if it's the right one or not for a 1975 car but flat and not italicised.

That's a boot badge foil, cut down to fit a front badge chrome bit!

This is what it SHOULD look like (this one is unfortunately sold)

Seriously?! Well then, probably not a bad thing I accidentally trashed it.

If it was these, then there is no bonnet foil. What's the quality like when comparing them with the originals?

I disagree, I think it is the correct foil.

Still have a very good badge if you want it?

Dave, the comparison picture idea is a great one, think that would be useful for other owners to know as well so maybe create a new thread in 'start here' so that it gets a bigger audience? I've often wondered about somehow pulling together reviews of Dolomite items so we all know where to go for the best quality and what to avoid.
