You can get glue that has the same refractive index to glass(the badge is not glass but there would be a resin which could flow well with heat) but I doubt it will end up perfect or cheap. You can sort of sometimes polish the top if it is hazed. I'd not bother with that too much, as I don;t know the answer, and replace it with a picture, probably Norman Gunston. How good would that be.

One of my videos, what a funny Bugger.

Bit of trivia.. I heard once that the video of Gough Whitlam on the steps that we've all seen, is from the Norman Gunston show. Apparently no one else had their cameras rolling at the time.

A fellow hoarder. I've got heaps, I buy them when I can. Smash Palace, Mad Max 1, 2, 3, Benny hill, The Big Steel, Paul Hogan (twin pack), Frontline, Fawlty Towers (box set), The Late Show (box set).. I could go on, but we're here to fix a horn button.

Frontline would have to be probably my favourite show of all time. It was spot on, on their observation and piss-take of the News and Current Affairs shows.
I’ve also got the Late Show, Bargearse & D Generation.
A very talented mob that Working Dog crew, they’ve made some great Flicks too. They just seem to understand Aussie humour.

I think you might be thinking of Kieth Moon. Poured a drink over his head, called him Aussie Faggot or something similar. Interviewing Telly Savalas, Norman asked him "Do you watch much telly, Telly?".

It was when Gene Simmonds was dating Diana Ross and Norman said "how do ya's get on with her being black and you're white(makeup)"Gene said we can discuss this outside if you like,haha. When he interviewed Mick Jagger on another one he asked him if there's any drugs under the bed,haha!...

The red on the grill badge needs scraping off on the back and repainting because of fading. I don't think you can get liquid glue/resin into the cracks as when you slightly flex the badges they crack more. When you take the horn badge out it will crack more as it has done with me.
The good news is.... Mr Gunston(or even Auntie Jack) would be cool on the front grill but could be a bit much staring at you from the horn all the time but YMMV. stuff repro

to tell ya truth they are very hard and like Rusty said probably just expensive to restore than to buy new ones,If the rest of your car looks good it would pay to get new badges,up to you though!...
