I moved my car into this thread instead of having its own thread. Its nice, but its not that nice....
I'm just reserving my spot here... I'ma wash my car one of these days here and get some good pics (especially once I get my new front badge all painted up and purty
This is mine.
Is that the factory paint? Looks very.... iridescent!
Dude, that paint is sex! Reminds of the 2g Eclipse color that was out there. I love that burgandy or whatever its called. Nice!
Did your badges come blacked out from the factory like that?
No they did not i spraytinted them to get this.
And this is what i did to the deck lid badge.
Looks great. I think there's badge painting happening this weekend.
Tom, have you read the thread at M3F.com about badge painting? You'd be wise to spend some time stripping off the aluminum coating (yes, it's actual metal) like I'm doing before you start painting. I think that's the reason my front badge chipped so badly so quickly.
I'm aware yeah. This was the reason I wanted to buy someone elses badges, so I can keep mine.
I've had mine soaking in 3 sequential 50% bleach baths over the last week or so. Seems to have done a pretty good job of stripping the aluminum plating off. This weekend I'm going to start sanding and painting.
Cool. I was going to go the more rapid approach, but maybe i'll wait.
Scotch birte is your freind when it come to making the paint stick.
Here's a few pics of my pride and joy at mazda6tech.
