I got mine from Bill Haverly of ASCO in England several years ago. Bill has passed on and I'm not sure who has taken over the club parts stock, but you can email Barry Paine at:
barrydpaine@live.co.uk
Barry can contact the right person to see if they might still have some in stock.
Good Luck

Hey John,

Fred is correct. Bill had made the original style windscreen rubber and sold a lot of them. He also did a very nice proper enameled radiator badge. ASCO bought all of Bill's spare after he passed away, so I am sure Barry will steer you in the right direction. I believe the spares are now in proper storage and have been assessed, so they should have a good idea of what is available. Bill was a good mate of mine for many years and I stayed at his Teddington hideaway many times. His stock of Roadster spares was something to see! I miss him very much. He was a real enthusiast and hugely knowledgeable about Singer Roadsters.

If you're in a bind for the radiator badge, I have one or two very used ones that could use some work, but may be ok for what you need. I'll photograph them this weekend for you to check out, if you like.

Barry has been really helpful, they have spare stock of the windscreen seal and they will sell me one. He was kind enough to put a posting on their bulletin board for a rad badge and a gentleman has answered, its far from perfect but its repairable. If for whatever reason the deal on the badge falls through can I come back to you Darcy?

Sure John. No problem. The enamel is chipped or scratched on either of them and the chrome plating is extremely thin, as seems to have been the case with a lot of English and European cars of that era. The studs on the back of them are good though. Here's a photo showing their condition.
