I noticed that the chrome on my factory hood hemi emblems are starting to bubble up, and before long they will be peeling : (

Has anyone else's started to peel ?
Has anyone tried refinishing / painting them?

There are other HEMI badge/decal options that are much nicer looking than the factory ones. Go to EBAY or AMAZON and simply search on "HEMI BADGE" or "HEMI DECAL".

I've found that flat decals last longer than 3D badges (especially from 3rd party vendors). Get a nice flat decal, in a color that compliments your car, and maybe add some Cubic Inch numbers, for a nice retro look.

The original badges are easy to remove with a little "Goo-Gone" and some fishing line or dental floss.

I experienced something similar. The red painted area on my rear spoiler's SRT 8 badge was starting to peel (after 9 years). I just repainted it with red Rust-O-leum paint. It was a perfect match.

I like decals too, but I think emblems look classier.
