    Painted my front emblem to nearly body colour

    My car is grey, and used the gunmetal spray paint for my other car wheels, it comes up quite good. I will do the rear next weekend.




    Winter and no garage sucks, the sun comes down at 5pm, I was planning to do a bunch of stuff behind the bumper, ended up only the DRL LED, foglights are installed, and painted the front emblem

    the rear emblem is painful to detach. why do Mazda make something that complicated. I believe it is glued onto the panel

    So not to put holes in the panel. This method saves just issues and water penetration.
    Just heat up with head dryer and pry with a plastic pry tool.
    Apply new double sided tape and stick back.
