This is a definitely not a new subject. My wife and I just returned from a club tour to the Chelan, Washington area and a small British car club show. Most of the British cars (primarily Austin Healys) had badge bars, lights, and badgets, giving them that British sports car look. I like the look with the badge bars but also like the clean look without. But my driving partner was impressed! So I came home and searched the forums, learned a lot, but no answers. So, does anybody know whether anyone makes a good badge bar for the 4As that doesn’t require drilling of bumpers, sits low enough not to interfere with opening the hood?

The TR Shop lists them for the Tr4-5. It says "no holes to drill".

I ended up fabricating my own bar, designing it to suit driving lights with most of the bar deliberately hidden. Bolts onto back of bumper.
You could make your own similarly specific for badges

This is what i'm using:

http://www.revingtontr.com/product/rtr8428/name/lamp-bar-tr4-5-stainless-steel

It sits nearly flush with the front bumper and mounts to the bumper brackets, if you don't have any lights or badges mounted it is mostly unnoticed

The older I get the more cynical I become, but, I can't keep up.

I ordered this one and it is on the way. Did you mount fog lamps? If so does the hood clear okay? Thanks, Grant.
