    Debadging rear boot P5/323f Badge

    Hey guys,
    After giving the Mazda a wash today I had the idea of debadging the rear boot/trunk area badges, the "Mazda" badge and the 323f badge. My question is, are these badges pronged on or just glued on . Dont really want to take them off it Im left with holes where holes shouldnt be , has anyone been brave enough to debadge their P5.

    Brian.

    Yea, there's holes.
    And it's a stupid idea because the rust always starts at the holes and creeps.

    UHM it's the fact that pretty much all car companies do this to make sure their emblem doesn't fall off the car. Sorry to say but it's hard to find anyone who uses just glue any more on a car.

    I would venture a guess that it could go either way.......all the badges on my Tacoma are simply taped/glued with no holes behind them. Depends on maker I guess. IMO, it is caca to attach a badges using holes in the body. Unnecessary

    Same, why cant they just use 3m tape or 3m glue stuff is strong enough. The P5s look well debadged aswell so thats whats so annoying

    The side protectors on the doors are just glued on.
    They really should have glued everything on.

    Yea,.. A lot of guys remove them.

    But Murphy's law suggests that the day after you remove them you get a door ding in some parking lot.
