Black bagdes

Just seen some black 'Volvo' badges for sale stated for a 360 GLT.

Where these used on some models? Would I need to change all of them?

I'd like some nice new badges but I'm on dark metallic grey so it might be a bit too black on black. I am going for back window and gutter trim already.

I have some nice metal 'Volvo' badges from earlier models I was planning to use, the silver doesn't wear away on cleaning, but stuck with plastic for the mk3 lettering style.

Not so sure about GLT's, perhaps the earlier Mk2's were black originally? I certainly know that Mk2 DL's had black boot badges - I have one somewhere that I pilfered from a scrap yard as a kid.

I also used some wet and dry on the later badges on my old GLT saloon as I preferred them black. The previous owner of my GLS also used T-Cut to remove the silver paint, actually looks quite nice along with the black pin stripe.
