    My english is poor but I try to understand ... If you have french members, I'll be very happy :)

    I search some technical informations and shops for my grand father car, a 2200 TC made in 1977... as me ;)

    Badge on hood (out of stock in the world ??!!), baguette on the side, steering wheel.. will be in the next shopping cart...

    Welcome to the forum Arnaud !

    It is a great place to spend some time, and I know that you will find a great deal of technical information that will be of assistance to you.

    By all means please post some photos of your grandfather's Rover, we would all love to see them! :)

    Hi, I believe the bonnet badges for S2 cars were remade 4-5 years ago but have long sold-out. I bet many people here bought one and stored it for some future use. Keep a look out here and on Ebay.

    "Good" secondhand ones are rare. Mostly they are horrible. Something in the plastic causes them to crack and craze internally so even if you repaint them nicely from underneath, they often don't look good.

    Good luck. 2200TC is relatively rare. Some would argue it's the best drivers car as it has sensible-size carbs and a better torque curve than any other 4 cylinder.

    I have a round badge, NOS, found in a garage sale of rover parts, it does not fit on my bonnet or the boot , so where does it fit?

    Sure it's not an SD1 facelift badge? These seem to turn up quite often.

    The round badge could be from the boot mounted spare cover.

    the back of the badge only has a shallow indent so would have to be glued on to any surface, the top of the boot seems like the only place?

    Boot badge without the chrome housing?

    Yeah I bought a "bad" one from Oz. Cheap though and looks OK if you haven't seen a good one.

    Ok here are my 2 crap ones.


    and here are the backs


    Left one is metal and the right one plastic or resin, the latter plastic and worst one is currently available off OZ ebay, have told the seller they are fake but he has not updated his auction page so buyer BEWARE

    ***EDIT*** PS I am in the process of trying to find a suitable badge manufacturer to get both the Bonnet and Boot badges re-manufactured to original as per the ones that Wins were selling that Mr Wilson had organised. but just been a bit busy with family things this last few months.

    Yes , I got sucked in with his "genuine" boot badge description.

    Genuine crap is what they are. My estimation of that seller is somewhat diminished as he now knows he is hoodwinking his customers and still chooses profit over honesty.

    Yes that is what I have, it fits in the center of the steering wheel, excellent quality, looks to be a genuine one.
    without the chrome ring.

    so what you have is a boot badge insert. Interesting that it also fits the steering wheel boss, never thought to check that out.
