• Badges / Emblems
BadgeReplicas badges are cast from a casting metal, harder than alloy but still slightly flexible. All metal badges are chromed or gold plated, and painted with two-pack enamels or automotive lacquers. These cast metal badges are just slightly smaller than the factory (OEM) badges (due to 1% - 2% shrinkage during cooling of the cast metal). While this is not at all noticeable visually, it does sometimes require that the badges are mounted with other techniques, such as automotive double-sided tape. This ensures a more secure ‘fix’ in any case – you may have noticed that virtually all modern automotive badges are affixed with such tape! Other badges that we offer may be OEM or plastic which will be indicated in the listing.
