 Stripping an old plastic insert emblem

 The picture on the left is a typical emblem as we receive it.  Notice how the paint oOriginal condition '54 Pontiac car emblemr coloring is flaking off or fading. The plastic itselfSame Pontiac car emblem stripped of all its colors however, seems to be in good condition.  This is an ideal candidate for a reproduction.  The picture on the right shows what sometimes happens to an emblem during the stripping process. This emblem will still make a good pattern emblem for reproduction, but it obviously could never be restored.  Why does this happen?  We don't know.  But we do know that old plastic is very temperamental, and trying to guarantee the outcome of a restoration is impossible.  That is why reproduction is the preferred method of restoration on an old plastic emblem.
