I have been looking for a red grill badge to complement my grill but was reluctant to pay main dealer prices, so, with a little experimenting I have customised the existing badge. Looks pretty damn good too and cost me sod all as I already had the paint in the garage. I will post a new "how to" in a little while.
Basically I removed the existing badge, made a template of it, transferred the template to thin aluminium, keyed the surface, primed it, painted it red, lacquered it, then glued the badge onto it. Then glued the badge back on the grill. Happy days. :-D
