Hey, i got my badges of ebay not new but vgc, if you mine the renewing the chrome side strip on your eb fairmont this is what i did. I bought new chrome inserts off ebay from seller bayford parts (you can only get front and back inserts, he told me you cant get side moluds anymore-bummer!!) But i pulled off the old chrome side stuff and used some chrome tape i got from my mate a panel beater (used to runs to cover not wide enuff)- it aint perfect but its not bad.

May help you

try soaking them in a glass of coke for a bit then a gentle scrub with a tooth brush. The acid in it should take any gunk off them. May not bring up the chrome but will deffinatly clean them up.
Or check out they may be able to recoat them for you.
