Did you try LMC Truck Parts or possibly even Rock Auto? I would be curious if they are the same dimensions as the older ones? If so, I think it would look VERY cool.
My second choice would be to have vinyl stickers made. They should even be able to reproduce the iridescence of the old badges. It is not a solid color.
And lastly I would remove and paint the stock ones. I wanted mine black so I just used the spray to darken tail lights made by VHT for my front Bow Tie, and removed the rear one altogether.

Here is my carbon fiber front Bow Tie.
Been done for about a year or so, still looks new.
Go to autovinylsolutions and get some blue vinyl and put it on there.
It will look great and last a long time.
Get the 3M 1080 Vinyl. It is made to wrap cars.

I just bought some of the brushed steel blue from autovinylsolutions. Can't wait till it gets here to try out.

I love autovinylsolutions
Got my black carbon fiber and brushed titanium from them for my interior wrap.
I'm going to get a sheet of gloss black and do my roof in the spring.
At least I hope my red truck looks cool with a black roof!
If not, I'll be peeling it off!
