all the rootes group badges used vacuum chrome for the lettering, the bakgorund colour was applied first but did not go into the recess, the crome was them applied and filled in the letters giving the 3d floating effect. Therew ere some 1725 badges that were red, as some "3" badges were, some of the S3 had the ribbed chrome stripes too, some had them, but not chromed.. typical variation from rootes
Cool, thanks, so there are some variations to the badge.
This is what I’m doing w/the SV. It’s in the paint shop now, I’m having them do it in the 09 Honda S2000, Chacain Metallic Silver, black interior and the Robbin’s, red on black, top, (it’s more of a marroon). I’ve got a true red, black and "chrome" auto paint. My plan would be to first paint w/the "chrome" and remove the overspray then lay down the background. Any suggestions/opinions on whether to use the black or red for the background? Or even any better suggestions for doing the "chrome".
