So the red flashes on the Trident on the grill and the Saetta’s have worn off....so three questions....what paint and from where and any advice on repainting them?

I did the same, same paint (enamel). Use a fine brush and apply as accurate as you can, then just wipe the excess off. Easier than you imagine. I even did my steering wheel emblem!56880

Exactly, I just bought a cheap pack of multiple fine brushes and wiped the excess of using a dettol style wipe.

Chuffed with the result if I do say so myself!

And btw, if you had any ‘old’ paint still in situ on the logo as I did, I used a cocktail stick to pick it out and it came away easily.

I tried this but made a hash of it so bought a new one, the ones on the rear quarters have lost their red as well and I have had replacements for 2 years and not fitted them.
That makes me a useless lazy git

If I recall correctly the red dash in the emblems were a way of identifying the GT S beyond all the other features. Yet not all GT S’s had these and seems a bit like a parts lottery as to what cars had them.
