    i got a new badge off ebay to save having to try sticking the old badge back on.

    its dead easy to paint

    key the surface with 1200 wet and dry sandpaper
    couple of coats of primer
    few coats of colour
    couple of coats of laquer
    stick badge on

    and heres a picture (any excuse to be a pic whore )
