Thanks for the suggestion about using epoxy on the badges- I had not
considered that at all. I'll try lengthening the pins first. I have access
to an elderly and sympathetic technician (my Dad), and as I help him with
his pc and emal, he does bits and pieces for me.
Also I am watching eBay for some new badges.

Peter, without knowing what metal alloy Rover would have used, I would try
to find a jeweller that does repairs to brooches and the like.
Alternatively, if you don't plan on removing them again, epoxy them in
