      How was it painted prior? Insets only, 2 tone, exterior only, all one coat?

      I would ok towards an implement paint if color doesn't matter. What color was it?

        This is the original coloration. There is a fancy name for it, but I think it was just inlayed enamel.

          Since it's a chrome-like finish, I'm thinking etch prime with a fine paint brush, then top coat the same way?

            I've used lettering / sign painter's enamel for similar things. It is slow to become tacky and has more solid pigment. The place I used to buy it is closed now, but they sold it for pinstriping.

                When I restore motorcycle badges I use model paint that you get from a hobby shop. I thin it down a bit and apply to the recesses, then I tilt the badge around until it is completely filled in. You could use a small eye dropper to apply the paint or just get a good amount on the tip of a small brush.

                  What about cleaning/prepping the base metal? It’s some type of plating, which is why the original enamel didn’t really adhere.

                    Fill with colors as wanted. Then sand off excess with very fine grit and a sanding block.

                        Yes.

                        As an alternative, if you have flat steel block or stone flat, lay a sheet of emery cloth down on it and use that to sand off any excess.
                        Used this technique to dress heads on old outboard motors when rebuilding them.

                          I'm going to pick up some small enamel bottles today and give it a go.

                              This is the combined plan. I may spray with etch primer to get into the recesses, paint the colors, then lightly sand the raised sections. I need the 109 fully badged for return to semi-regular driving.
