I am finally in the process of restoring my exterior.  The JH5 emblems on one side of the car had fallen off and were in bad shape on the other side.  So I created a couple of graphic files and had them printed up at a local sign shop.  They are plastic rather than printed on Aluminum like the originals, but came out looking OK.  The Union Jack I got off the internet and simply scaled to the 1:1.7 ratio of the original.  The J-H 5 part I made by scanning the old logo and cleaning it up by hand as much as possible.  I am not much of an artist, so it is not perfect.  I will post the two files in case anyone else wants to have these printed up for themselves.  The set for both sides plus a spare only cost me $26 (US).

Here is a comparison of the new versus old emblems:

Attached is file for the Union Jack part of the emblem at 600 DPI resolution.  If printed out it should be 2 7/16" by 1 7/16", which is what the old one measured out as.

Attached is the J-H 5 portion of the emblem.  This is also 600 DPI and should print out to 2 7/16" by 5/8".  (If anyone can do a better job of cleaning up this image, please post it here.  I would like to have a copy).

They look great. I am missing the metal plates. Where did you get those?

The metal plates, as well as the original emblems, were on the car when I bought it many years ago. Only the emblems fell off, not the plates. You might be able to get plates from someplace like http://www.britishmasters.net/.
