The latest creation is a reproduction of the pre-war Alvis Car Club badge of 1934, dimensions 70 x 75mm, (2.75″ x 2.95″) which is identical with the original except for the method of attachment
The original has a soldered 35 mm diam. round clip attached that means attachment to only a round bar (headlamp or otherwise) of that diameter, whereas the new fixing is two 3 mm soldered nuts for fixing with set screws, that will allow attachment by a similar round clip method or attach to a grille or vertical flat pillar; it would be easy to cut flat brass (chromium-plated) or stainless steel as a standard pillar with two holes aligning with the vertical nuts on the badge and with two horizontal holes at the base which would act as a mounting for a badge-bar (20mm) with clip-type type mounting. Some may wish to fit it to the 50mm dumb-iron between the chassis rails or even the vertical louvres of a later Alvis radiator. Hence, the need for a universal fixing on the badge itself.
As there is also interest in the lapel badge this is also being costed for production.
