Restoring Badging

Post by rcgreg » Wed May 03, 2017 2:34 pm



The badges (Emblems) on our wings are beautiful - for a time at least. then the gold inlay turns to the base metal silver as the gold color cracks off and becomes road or garage dust. Has anyone devised a method of putting the gold back into the GOLDWING emblem?
