Hi All,
Iíve just acquired the badges that go on the rear roof pillar and as I donít have a template for correct fitment I was wondering if someone that has them factory fitted on their car do a simple measurement for me.
I need the measurement from the top corner of the badge to the stainless trim on the edge of the rear pillar and the same for the bottom corner of the badge to the stainless trim. Both sides please.

Hopefully this will give me a close position.
Thanks in advance
Charles

Thanks Ron, really appreciate it. Could you please examine the attached photo , it looks to me that the top corner of this badge looks to be more than 2.5 inches away from the metal molding. I could be wrong.
Just wondering if anybody else has different spacing ?

Question, these badges were on later model Spirit and Spurs - is that correct?

My 82 Spirit was repainted from Masons Black to a stunning deep metallic Purple that really looks black at night time. But the badges are not there so I don't know if they were originally on the Series One Spirits.

Does anybody know if Series One Spirits and Spurs had these badges when new?

It appears from the attached 2 photos that Ronís spacing for the rear Quarter Badge is correct.
Notice the blue 88 model does not have chrome trim under the roof line but the silver 89 car does.the red car above looks like the badges may have been put on later.Rear Quarter Badge spacing (correct)

The attached photo is of my car with a paper badge using Ron Valeís measurements.
This looks to be a perfect fitment and matches the correct factory Positioning in the previous 2 photos.
Thanks again Ron.My Car with paper badge

REAR PILLAR BADGE PLACEMENT (correct spacing)
The strip that is being referred to below is the alloy strip found under the roof line and down the inside edge of the rear pillar. The strip appeared on later spirits.

Badge top right hand corner to rear edge of strip is 2.755 inches or 7.00 cm
Badge bottom right hand corner to rear edge of strip is 1.550 inches or 4.00cm.
A line from the bottom right hand corner of badge to extreme bottom of strip (rear edge) is 1.765 inches or 4.5cm (in a NW to SE direction)

Charles...
I agree that the badges on the red car do not look positioned properly. They are too far away from the trim and also appear too large as if they used radiator shell badges. People do whatever they want but that does not make it correct. If they like it, that is what matters but should not become a guide for what you should do. FWIW yours look a bit large as well. Just saying. On my '86 Spur the badges appear even closer to the trim than shown in the other photos, and smaller as well.

Here are photos. I could be wrong about the size though.

p.s.
...on second thought I see that the placement appears different because mine has the Everflex roof and there is an additional chrome strip delineating the painted area from the Everflex area. Taking that optical illusion into consideration, I think you have it correctly located. Size as well.

Hi Christian,
Thanks for your input. I just thought that I would post my findings as a guide of correct factory placement for those that donít have the badges but would like to apply them at some time. Save them the leg work, stress and so on.
A lot of us are quite particular with the cars and if the desire was there to apply badges, I believe that factory spacing would be desirable as opposed to a Willy Nilly application.
In any event your badges are perfectly positioned and look great. Iím sure the factory had a specific jig for this job as all the cars I have seen with factory fitment measure the same.
Cheers
