Freshen up your International Badge

Super easy project that makes a world of difference.
The International name badge on our 2014 23D was starting to show a little fading. The blue and white were both fine, but the red........left me feeling blah.
See photos for what I did. Effort required was minimal and Results are wonderful!

Paint was Rust-oleum RED APPLE

Thank you!

I saw your post last year when we bought our International 27fb, just a month later from Airstream of Las Vegas. The owner who traded it in lived there and our International badges looked just like yours. I bookmarked your post and started doing he same to mine this weekend. Thanks for sharing what you did, very much appreciated!!
