I recall not too long ago when a person could purchase a Ford badge with a background color that matched the body. I hesitated to buy, and Ford shut the OEM market down with copyright suits. I had given up until I saw a posting with a black coupe similar to mine with red badges, including the steering wheel hub. I found that HVT sells a red tint similar to their black. Bought some and went for the steering wheel. Two coats of tint, two of clear and Meg's polishing compound. I really like the look. The blue background looks black and the chrome comes out a subdued red. I'm doing the front an back badges next, probably with a third coat of clear for extra protection. There may be other colored tints out there in rattle can form in auto or marine that might work. When blocked, find a workaround!
