    Hi,

    I have my dad's old car club plaque from the late 50s or early 60s. Unfortunately, it sat in a box that some fertilizer was spilled and it ate up the metal a bit. I had to grind down the residual fertilizer to keep it from destroying more metal because I could not completely get it all off.

    So, I have a couple of questions. First, can the metal be "replaced"? Second, do I paint the plaque first then have it polished or, vice versa?

    From what I see....I'd just red scuff it, prime it and then paint it...then call it a day!!

    That doesn't look bad at all. I agree with MUSCLEALMIGHTY prime it paint it and call it a day. There is a little damage in the lower left big deal

    or talk to o'brien and I am sure they would be more then willing to make you a new one.

    Take it to a machine shop and see if they can add alum. to it and machine it to original. Might be cheaper to check with O'Brien Truckers however.

    Looks like normal road wear to me. Keep it vintage, don't make it perfect. Just my two cents.
