Thanks Bryan,

I got them on their site however I ordered them weeks ago from an American site and they are stuck in customs in England . I don't think I will ever get them.

Hi Brian
The badge your showing I had some exact transfer ones made by a company in Derby ( can look up details for you ) I think they worked out £12 a pair

Hope that helps you complete your project
