MG TD TF 1500 - Badge Bar

Does anyone know of this type of a badge bar for a TD, without the fog light brackets?

I'm not using the fog light bracket and it always looks like something is missing.

Thanks,
Mort

Hi Mort,

Something like this?

In the description, it states that it has lamp brackets;

>>Badge and lamp bar MG TD/TF, includes fog/driving lamp mounting brackets.

Correct Steve. That is not what I am looking for. I want a bar without the fog lamp brackets.

I may have one. There was one on the TF I replaced when I put fog/driving lamps on. Can't recall if I gave it away or still have it. I'll check.

Jim,
Thank you. I've sent them an e-mail with some mounting questions.

Dave,
If you still have it and if it will work on a TD I'd like more info please. Would a photo be available?
Thanks,

Mort,
Looked around the garage and no luck yet.
I have some boxes in attic and it may be up there?
Have a car on the lift right now with wheels off so I can't get to attic till I finish that one.
(Attic access is above the lift.)
Working all weekend ...but will try and get up there next week.
Will let you know...if it is there, yours for postage.
Can't for the life of me remember if I gave it away or still have it.
If anybody here got a badge bar with no lamp mounts from me over the years...let us know!

Thank you Dave. There is no rush since it is not a critical part of the drive train.

Mort,

I have the badge bar with double fog light mounts but really only want one. I have thought about grinding one off and having it rechromed but not sure what that would look like.

If you use the link Jim Benjamin posted above, Stafford has some nice badge bars that are plain. At the bottom of the page they have a couple of spot light bracket if you want to add a single light.
These however do not mount on the bumper bolts. They seem to mount on the apron and would require drilling holes
I am still waiting for a response to my inquiry about the mounting and size.

Bill,
Abingdon Hootersville North Annex is M.G. friendly if you need to get yours in the air, just let me know.

Rates are reasonable: Free...and the beer is cold.
Summer appointments require we remove the hammock before lifting car.

Cheers,

Another approach. A set of old TC brackets and a length of stainless pipe. Marvin,ct

There is always the badge bar that is on my TD. Put on in 1955 by an owner who could not bare to part with money, it is a piece of pipe painted (stainless will work) flattened on each end with holes drilled through it and held on by the Phillips screws on the front pan. Somehow, it just looks like it belongs.

Mort,
Got up in the attic today.
I must have give the bar away as I can't find it in any parts boxes up there.

Sorry,
David

For my YB I used a stainless bar which I purchased on eBay, cut to length, and polished. Never rust, looks good.
