Is it the glue still, or the actual lacquer?

And why can't you T-cut metallic paint, I have before?

Just T-cut it, the colour has possibly faded under the Laquer though. If thats the case then theres nothing you can do.

can you see the glue, grey/black stuff, or is it faded? or is it covered in light scratches from rubbing like a bastard with white spirit?

Take it to a bodyshop. They will machine polish it with some Finesse for a few quid which will tidy up the paint. What happens is the paint under the badge doesn't fade so much or get covered in scratches and shit like the rest of the paint does. A good polish will hpoefully tidy it up considerably.
