Yep new plate was stuck on the old one.

They are plastic rivet type fixings...one use only.....you push the pin right through to get them off.

I will clean up the black plinth and repaint it to see what it looks like.

I have a stainless one to go on instead....

+ Rokut rivet
+ black nylon

I would think a aluminium rivet will do the job?

That's what its all about though, these little jobs! Certainly freshened up part often over looked.

Good improvement. Well worth it.
Did you buy the Jaguar badges a while ago? I don’t think they are available anymore?

Xjrover seem to have them all the time Naki, I got a set for my own car too, nothing beats a new set of badges for a Jag, it seem to make as much difference as a new set of wheels :lol:
1997, 4.0 LWB X300 - Unlucky car but still a daily driver.
1988, 3.6S XJS - Never ending restoration project.
1994, 3.2S X300 - Accident damaged, October 2015. Gone!
1994, 3.2S XJ40 - Long gone.
