Hi there, I just wondering how you could restore the emblems on a 66 mustang? Can you use model paint or is that wrong? I don't know. My problem is that I don't want to buy new ones. I want my car to be as original as possible! If anybody has answers for this question is a big help to me and is much appreciated in my book. Thanks!

I don't know for sure, but a few days ago, there was a post asking this. Many responses were that yes, you can use model paint, and it works very well. But, I don't know from personal experience, just from what they said.

I used model paint on mine and they came out pretty well. Not as nice as new ones, but still presentable. I used a trick from my model making days: spray some paint onto a piece of wax paper (or just regular paper) then use a model brush to paint in the areas on the emblems. You can also mask some areas and use a Xacto knife to cut away portions that need to be painted. For the steering wheel and gas cap's sunken letters I painted them in with a brush, then removed the excess paint on the flat chrome areas with 000 steel wool. Good luck!
