Genuine Rear Gloss Black Leaper and Jaguar Lettering available?

Post by scz4 » Wed Jun 10, 2020 11:03 am

Morning all,

So I was "building" a new F-type on the Jag website just for fun and noticed that the rear Leaper and Jaguar lettering are now in gloss black.

So called my local Jag dealer and they weren't able to find it on the system. Does anyone know the part number?

I've already removed the lettering, but would like it back as it looks too bare, but much rather have gloss black. Is the leaper just stuck on, or is there a pin hole underneath?

It's just stuck on - no pin hole.

FWIW - It's most probably easier to send them off to be Hydrodipped Piano Black and buy an original OEM set on Ebay as a standby if you ever want to put it back to stock.

Hi

I have just changed my rear badges to gloss black.

"F Type" and "leaper" and " jaguar" i bought from a company called www.blackbadges

"R" badge was purchased from british parts sales@britishparts.co.uk think part no T2R53738 but check

did the changeover myself, you just have to be a little patient.

hope this helps

I found that i had to email them (black badges that is)

It was the "R" badge that was the most difficult to find - just couldn't get an OEM anywhere until i came across

customerservice@britishparts.co.uk i also bought OEM wiper blades off them at at the same time as well.

i would also try british parts (go on their website) for the leaper and jaguar letters also f type they may well have them.

customer service was great, just phone sales.

need any help with getting badges off loads of advice on u tube or give me an email

cheers

Ray

Both the black versions of the R badge and the F-Type script are available from stock however the Jaguar leaper and the Jaguar lettering, which come as a package are a restricted part! It doesn't make sense if you are going to restrict the black badges then you do it to all of the black items.

I have provided my VIN number to the parts department and they now have to submit the information to Jaguar to await their approval. :o
