Originality is # 1. Patina is highly regarded over non stock replacement. If you can match do so as close to original as possible or clean and reuse the original.

Try a google on "Concours restoration" or Concours d'Elegance

Personally I have only seen one concours event. I found it interesting but beyond my area of passion.
