Sand them back with 800 wet&dry.You'll have to use plastic primer or the paint will peel.Use 2-pac paint for a better finish that will last.I've done it to my XR8,changed it from red to gold as well as the XR8 badges.Pics can be seen in the V8 forum under 302W rebuild.Hope this helps.

You may have trouble getting them back on after you take them off because they bow
