W113 "280 SL" badge.

Hello,

I wanted to know how to restore the "280 SL" insignia.

Is it chromed or polished?

It feels like aluminium.

Can anyone confirm?

Thanks

Great - so its chromed aluminium?

Feels very "soft". I removed yesterday.

My bad

I thought you were talking about a 113 280SL. The 107s have aluminum badges.
