Make your own......may sound daft, but if you buy a set of mini 1 scuttles, then you can cut in a GP badge Very Happy would look AMAZING and unique!

A guy did it on tM with a '1' - its on here somewhere coz I showed Max

GP Badge too big though about that Sad - also 2 separate letters, so harder and could end up wonky !!

Yeh - my thinking too Smile - think its going to be the JCW ones and the scuttle colour coded matt silver ( but God -not but me - my car spraying friend) - just dont really like the 'S' ones : too much Chrome on them for the GP ** ROB i know you will be proud NO CHROME ** Very Happy
