Start a new topic, post pics of your badges, contact our overlay vendor NHolds,
and see if he'll do a one-off for you.

The reason I suggest clearcoat is that it covers the exposed edges of the overlay and
seals them in. It also has the cosmetic effect of 'hiding' the edge so they look factory,
even on close examination.

On my SLE, it worked beautifully.
