Im a retired Marine and I would like to put the Marine Corps Emblem off my Dress Blue's Hat on the front of my Wing.



But I do not want to have to polish it all the time.

Anyone know where I can get if plated to match the Gold from the Plated "Goldwing" Emblem, or perhaps know who and where to write at Honda to see if they will do it?

No info for the Honda connection but did you ever consider a Powdercoat finish?

Maybe a good polishing, then wipe with some rubbing alcohol, then a squirt of Clear coat.

Got the badge from my dress Air Force Cap on my right side fairing pocket cover.

Thanks for your service.

Like Bob said a Trophy might have something that will stand up to the weather.

Thank you for your many years of service. Advanced plating may be your answer. If they cannot do it for you I am sure those nice people will send you to the right place to get a professional job that you and your medal deserve.
www.advancedplating.com their work has been on many TV shows like Hot Rod Tv Trucks etc. I checked and they do 24 k gold but you may consider doing the foe powder coating gold for a less expensive option. Good luck and great idea.

Well I can tell you from experience that if you have gold, you are going to need to polish it. I had a ton of 24kt on my 1200 and it took me 'days' (not hours) to shine it for the quest of the trophy.:rolleyes:
