Testors model paint in the little square bottles.  Virtually bulletproof.  Lasts forever.  Variety of colors avail.  Goes on really thick.  I like to set the emblem flat on a table. then use a toothpick to drip into the recesses.  Allow about 3 days drying.  Lay it in really, really thick(covering all the detail) it will shrink down as it dries.

Little detailing stuff is cheap like you say, and is very rewarding. Cleaning and detailing areas that lots of people ignore is what makes a car stand out from the rest.

An old room mate of mine could polish a rusty old turd and detail it till it looked like a diamond. When he was a high school auto body student he took my 67 396 Grande Parisienne wagon and polished and detailed it till it looked like new. It was amazing. That old paint had looked totally shot before he took it. Part of the trick is detailing the wheels, tires, polishing the chrome etc., not just doing a wax job.

Black in the lettering as far as i know.

Trunk emblem has one speed nut on the upper part(easy to see in side the trunk.  At the tip of the spear botom it is a barrel clip.  Carfully pry at the base and it will pop off.

just give it a gentle pull, its in there friction fit into a plastic sleeve -now i've tested how easy these ones come off i think i'm going to use some clear silicone!... i'm going with no black on the front fender beaumont emblem (although i always defer to daves knowledge on these cars!). Dave have you seen black in the lettering? These emblems on the car are unrestored originals, and in near mint shape, the red is a little faded.
