Not sure if this is the right part of the board fror this posting, but:

I'm starting on restoration of a 1974 5-speed, VIN 19299.  I'm looking for the Union Jacks which were on the small motif placards on either wing which replaced the early J emblem.  These are rectangular metal plates with a "J-H 5" on the upper part of them and a Union Jack on the lower part. 

Delta Motorsports have been able to supply the plates and the J-H 5 stickers, but not the Union Jacks.

Does anyone have those Union Jack stickers?  I haven't been able to find anything the right size (or sturdy enough).

Thanks!

I got mine from Delta, but it took over 6 months and for what they are they were not cheap. you might want to try one of the Brit. parts suppliers if Delta cant get them anymore.

I agree about "not cheap" - the bits I did get were quite expensive.  On the other hand I was able to get them - and if any of the three original elements cannot be found, I think this is the easiest to somehow replicate. 

Thanks for your response.

There are stick-on metal and screw-on cloisonne badges at triple-c. Lots of other fun British car swag too. They actually carry the JH cap.

Thanks.  Just spoke with them and ordered a pair of Union Jacks.  They are a bit smaller than it looks as though the originals were, but are sturdy and enameled on metal - and not terribly expensive.

Update on 9 December.  Received the metal Union Jacks from CCC.  They are smaller than the originals; leave about a 1/4 or 3/8 border around them when mounted on the placard.  However they look good, and are sturdy.  I'll try to get a pic and post it.

Here's a pic of the cloisonne union jack mounted on the JH-5 plackards on either wing.  Sorry it took me so long.  I think they look pretty good even if they are a little small for the space.
