Well that has solved the mystery of the left hand badge in the pics, it's a boot badge from a Mk1 and knowing what the spares came from, it also solves the mystery of the other badge - it's a Mk1 (UK spec) bonnet badge.

If you look at the top of the page you'll see what we call a Mk1 and a similar bonnet badge to the right hand one in the pics. I think somewhere i have some pics of my Mk1 as well, if i can unearth them they will be in colour and show the badge better.

Alternatively you could buy one of those badges (i'm guessing from Dale Charles aka Sterlingfixer?) from the USA and either fit it "as is" to give a bit of "mystery" or you could try transferring the insert.

Those badges are here anyway if you decide you want them. :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

I am pretty confident that the Mk 1 800 were imported into New Zealand direct from the UK fully built up and to UK specs, so I can see no reason why they would put a different Rover badge on the front from that fitted in the UK. The right hand of the two badges looks of a similar size to the bootlid badge (on the left) which leads to me to suspect it might be a bonnet badge from a pre-1995 Rover 200/400 series before they slapped a rather naff looking chrome grille on the front.
Thanks for going to all the trouble of hunting out your badges for me, much appreciated, but I suspect that neither are what I am hunting for - the search goes on!

Do you happen to have a scuttle panel, door seals or a complete exhaust for a mk1?

All i can say Pat is it's part of a collection of parts that were meant to be all 800 (early 820 and very late 825 KV6) and as the later KV6 beasts had the grille with the small badge, that only really leaves the Mk1/early 820 as the donor for the badges.
All the other parts i have relate mainly to the Mk1 820 or late 825KV6 and as you can see, they were bagged up with several other parts which in fact include the late "800" bootlid badge from the KV6 powered Sterling.

Postage costs range from £6.55 to £13.95 (although i'd have to confirm the weight but sure it's under the limit for those prices) depending on the service (economy, through to tracked and signed for) if you change your mind. :wink: :D
Cheers,

In a word James, no. If the door seals are the same as Mk2 seals then have a word with Dusan :

He also has a scuttle but it's obviously a Mk2 item and a stainless Vitesse exhaust system (think it's a 3" bore).
