Badge Colors?

The badges are originally black with chrome surface, but the chrome has
most probably been worn off. You should IMO paint them black. A
semigloss should be very nice on a silver car!

I had a Tornado red 84 4kq a few years ago (I still regret I sold it).
On that one I put the badges "Audi" on left of trunk,  and "quattro" on
right of trunk, both badges from the lid of an 89 100q. That was pretty
nice in my eyes.
