I have noticed on my 2015 Morgan the enamel on the winged badge is not in great condition. Parts are fading or missing. Can anything be done to refurbish it?

It's because Morgan use rubbish cheap product.
Mine was replaced almost at new in 2011 but after that failed I changed to the old-style badge some time ago
There is plenty on this site addressing the problem. It's a known and very common problem.

I did use aircraft model paint and finally nail polish to get an enamel/metallic look but gave up in the end and did the job properly with a new old-style badge.

I’ll try a touch up. If it doesn’t work I can always replace it. Where do you get the old style badges?

Badges are £68.12 inc. VAT from the Morgan factory shop. (search “cowl badge”)

Many thanks. Do they last any better?

Don't use the touch up brush. Use the "dropper" which is on most touch up kits these days and do the same with the lacquer after the colour is really dry.

No personal experience as I am still putting up with my ragged one, but I have heard others say that they are better. You also get the model number +8, +4 or 4/4 which does not appear on the newer types. The only thing to be careful of is that the paint on the car may have faded slightly and as these badges have a different foot print, it may show. If car is not very old, it may well be ok.

Mine is 21 years old and looks just like Gary's photo but with +8 instead and as new. BHM stock them too.
