    I was wondering if you folks had any idea how I could re-paint the silver bits on the emblem as in the picture?

    I have just come across this whole new problem that seemed impossible until I remembered that here at the NAWCC we do very similar stuff with the clock dials.

    The emblem's silver parts are recessed from behind
    and it was reverse painted / printed.

    I have so far tested chrome spray paint on a sheet of glass.
    Whilst it looks great on the spray side, the other side (looking through the material) comes out dark grey.:confused:

    The emblem is made of some sort of clear plastic and all the old paint can be scraped off easily.

    I am also wondering if a dial silvering kit might work?

    Any ideas, greatly appreciated.

    Best regards
