Tom, I'm not sure exactlt what the finished product ids supposed to look like, but you could sand-blast it and paint it with aluminum paint.

If its alum you can use a soft buffing wheel on a bench grinder with some alum polish to shine it up. Or if it galvanized clean it up and paint it just be sure to use a primer made for galvanized metal.

----- do you have "Ferguson System" badge underneath this main emblem? Remember blue backbround with silver/gray lettering. (not red/gray) ---- You might be able to clean/sand the background ---- paint the background and use a buffer on a dremel tool to polish up the letters --- then paint em.
A trophy shop can even help clean up the engraving of the "2N"
at the bottom of the oval. As far as chroming --- wow...if painting is not enough, then you will need to buy one. Cheaper than trying to get some shop to do such small custom work, unless you can find an extremely talented micro painter (someone who paints diecast cars etc)

Or you can keep the original and buy a nice replacement.
Check www.just8ns.com and tell Don --- Andy from Tractorforum
sent ya. :D

good luck.
Andy

Try calling around to the local hot rod and custom motorcycle shops. They would know who does good chrome work in your area.
