Default "Badges? We don't need no stinking badges...."

I took the badge off my trunk lid because it was looking pretty bad. i tried to clean it up, but it won't get clean enough.

Anyone have a SSEi badge like this to sell? How much are they new? Where can I get a new one?

So, there is a rust mark on the trunk llid where the second * was. It'* not rusting through, it is more of a rust stain. I am sure I can buff it out, but what should I use?

Perhaps a little rubbing alcohol or car wash soap with hot water? Maybe even a little WD-40 sprayed onto a q-tip and rubbed on would work.


I looked on ebay and found a SSEi badge to replace it

I did try WD40 already and I even tried metal polish gently. It is still there. I can scrape it with my fingernail, so I know its on the surface and not in the paint.
that badge is a bit different. I will try another search
Thanks
