Beaumont emblems restored?


Has anyone tried to restore their Beaumont emblems?

The trunk spear, grille spear, fenders and dash. 

Im thinking it might be worth trying to repaint the red thats faded on the 67. 

Not sure if theres a colour match or an easier process?

I'd restore the originals... thin out some red paint, or use spray bomb red and flow it in with a nice soft artist brush.

Have you posted pics of your car? I don't think I've seen it!!

Testor's model paint works quite well. Some colors that are very close. I just use a tooth pick and put it on a drop at a time and it sort of flows.

I tried the Testors route with poor results - most of the paint flaked off in a short time. I cleaned the part with degreaser but still got very poor adhesion. It was fine where there was some texture, but over glossy chrome, not so good. I couldnt bring myself to scuff up the chrome but if I had, Im sure it would have worked.
The paint from the factory must be self-etching or?

Does anyone know what the original colours were? The red on mine (and others) is almost orange but that could well be fading.

Believe paint strippers use a product called one-shot or sure-shot.
I have about 5 colours but many more are available.
Eastwood supplies has it.

Wow - thanks for all the replies!

Somehow I didnt see all them until now.
Im wondering if maybe the original colour is the same red Pontiac used on their spear, or maybe it was meant to match the red on the Canadian flag...
The car stays in the garage unless its driving so probably last pretty well if I can get something to stick.
Maybe a tiny brush from a model store - and a magnifying glass!

The trick in painting them is to put on lots of paint and then remove the excess with a lint free cloth soaked in reducer. Remove the first lot almost immediately and then come back in 15 minutes and remove more. Then back again just before it finally dries. Takes a bit of practice but works wonderfully.
