#1 Horn push/button badge

Post by peters3103 » Tue Jun 19, 2018 12:11 pm

Hello from downunder,

Question:
Can the badge from the centre of the steering wheel on a Series 2 (doesn’t operate the horn) be fitted as the horn push button on a Series 1?

Cheers,
Pete

If it is the Jaguar head on the chequered background then yes. Part No C16070

You can also use the growler badges from the S3 chrome hub caps.

I can’t see why not but you’ll have to remove the anti rattle foam first. Note that the chrome ring is now black on a S2.

Yes, I was aware of the hubcap badge but was unable to find any apart from a mint set of 4 $$$
The chrome/black ring isn’t an issue as it’s not part of the actual centre badge.
I have, since my post located a very nice original Series 1 item in the US so have bought it. I’ll recover some of the cost selling my repro one. Thanks gents.
