This week I tore down my late 80's Euripoccola, thoroughly cleaned it and installed new gaskets and seals. The badge was pretty ratty so I decided to improve that as well. New metal ones are no longer available so I did a quick search and found a post here from a few years ago. I basically followed the advice of OldNuc and am pretty happy with the results. I thought I'd share some pics in case anyone else is interested.

1 - I stripped it and washed it with detergent.
2 - I painted it with Rustoleum Appliance Epoxy and let it dry for a few hours.
3 - I placed some Mothers Mag polish on a new stamp pad and then rubbed the badge on that for about 5 minutes.

Nice job. How do these come off the machine?
Thanks

Great job!
I was wondering the same. I avoided curing my fresh enamel paint under my base because I didn't want to risk melting my badge.
