hmm i took a credit card :D! and i gently took a hair dryer and just cut threew the 2sided tape:p and once thats off.bam you got it (ALMOST).. like the theres 2 things holdin the badge...THE BITCH PINS.

Can use ( a fishing line pretty good to start off , or a Flat card)

(on the mazda symbol theres 2 pins on each side close to the middle)
(on the (mazda)lettering theres 3 soo watch out lol i broke a pin XD)
and the "3" just go down threw it ;) an bam cutz off :D!)

umm no i didnt use the pointless bleech method i just took 2000griit and 1500gritt sand paper kinda sanded lightly soo it dosnt have that reflection thing any more took Grey primer sprayed the badges about 4 times i let them dry like 15mins for each coat once i got the last coat i let it dry for 1hour took the 2000grit and lightly sanded it LIGHTLY (to take off some bumps) then i took the paint (Black) and i gave it like 7 coats soo it was nice and sexxi ;) :p last coat i put on of black paint i kinda sprayed clear soo it would go udner the wet paint and kinda in it soo looks shiny :D!...

then once it was all dry i took the clear and gave it 5coats ;) and baam :D! i put dubble sided tape cut it out put it back on my car and bam its fine

(not responsible of any damage done... if you dont know how to do it dont do it i dont want to get blamed for some thing i didnt do)

yes but go to the auto part store you need the extra strength double sided molding tape. wal mart has 3M double sided tape but it's for nancy's


yes blow dryer and fishing string are the best. for the rear Mazda sign there are 2 pins, i just loosened it up with fishing string and then pried it up a bit then popped it with my hand.

i did the bleach method but for only over night, then just sanded it down with a green brillo pad let and painted em.

Which paints? I read most people use Krylon Fusion but in my experience of interior trim paintin Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric is the most durable.

Its hard to put it back on the car.
Idk what type of double sided tape to use, i saw some stuff at autozone before.
I can get one side in because the tab came out with it but the other 2 sides wont go in all the way.

i used the bleach method and would not recommend it to anyone. it takes way to long and doesnt get all the chrome off. i have to redo mine eventually. yours looks really good
