> Be glad you still have one , The badges were installed as a bare steel stamping with just a little lead to the rad. Water gets behind the plate and rusts it out , protected by the black paint on the outside but not from behind. What I did with mine was gently and gently wire brush to get some of the surface rust off, use some rustoleum rusty primer and spray it to the masked off plate. It will help seal the surface, also something like rust mort will work, see if you can get it behind the plate too. Anything to protect it when the rad is cleaned. Ive heated them off before but if there is enough rust present it can be damaged even more ( rust thru holes)I would get it sealed up and then paint it all together as original was. Dont over paint or use a brush, just enough to help blend the rust a little smoother.
