Chrome Mastercraft Logos - Remove/Replace?

I spent most of yesterday detailing my 2008 MariStar 245. After buffing and waxing, the boat looks new again. I couldn't help notice that the Chrome Mastercraft decals and MariStar tags are starting to show their age with some scuff marks, gauges and missing chrome.

I figure that I have 3 options:

1. Remove the chrome decals and replace with the same/similar chrome decals

2. Remove the chrome decals and replace a different type of branding

3. Remove chrome decals and leave the boat blank

Looking for input/suggestions on what others have done because I know it all comes down to personal preference.

Thanks for your input

I wouldn't leave it blank. I would remove polish the area and then have those re chromed. The one's on the rear should be fine or replace those with new one's since they should be the soft plastic.

You could opt for the larger chromex MC decals as well, I think that would look sharp.

Hadn't thought about having them re-chromed. I'm going to look into that. What do you think about color matching as an option?

While I'm not a fan, I've seen people plastic-dip them with black. If you like that look, it just takes some time and $15 for the can of plasticdip. It is also easy to remove.

Just a different thought.
