    I made a new baffle for my 4104, cause the old one was TRASHED.
    I found the 11" Marshall logo, and even the JCM 800 gold badge for the corner, but cannot find the black plate that holds the gold corner badge. Anybody know where I can get one?
    Yes, I tried google, but I don't even know what to call the thing I'm looking for.

    I cut some black plastic backer plates for the aftermarket block logos I put on my 6101 & 6912.

    Not exactly the tray type like the original anniversary badge, but from a few feet away, you can't tell the difference.

    I just don't want to break it trying to remove it from the old baffle. It seems easier to replace.

    The metal badge plate is held into the plastic tray by some sticky tape.
    It comes out, just pry it gently and minimize any bending.
    Screws are under that and the tray comes off.
    Flatten any bending from removal, reapply some sticky tape or spray glue and re-install.
    I did this process with the new grill cloth in above pic 6912 cab.
    Even with a new tray, you'll need to re-use the metal badge.
    Once you get it out, the old tray just unscrews.

    yes, as fitz says, you will have to pry the metal badge out of the tray. I use a butter knife. Work it in to the right side, to pry inbetween the tray & the badge. Gently push it from right to left, underneath the badge, keeping it as flat as possible. Once you get so far, the badge will come right out.

    You either do this, then unscrew the 2 screws, or, you tear up the baffle & grillcloth prying the screws out of the cabinet...

    This guy 6:00 in, removes his, using a heat gun. If you use heat, I'd recommend a hair dryer, over a heat gun, but do whatever you wish. I didn't find that I needed any heat. He, also uses a (small) screwdriver, but, I find that a flat knife (butter knife) works best.

    start at 6:00:
