De-badged

Postby John H » Mon Mar 07, 2016 3:22 pm

Decided to remove the "Mazda" and "MX5" badges from the bootlid, makes a much cleaner look in my opinion.
Easy job, a few minutes with a heat gun and some dental floss.
See what you think ...

Looks good, the MK4 has pins to locate the badges so it's a more radical process to do.... :evil:

How annoying, cos the Mk4 badges are even worse.

Much prefer it John. I was keen on totally debadging the Sport during it's repaint, but SWMBO said NO.
That is the polite version. :shock:
5s don't need badges. Period.

Emboldened by my success I had a go at removing the central Mazda emblem as well, but I have a suspicion it is pinned, so I gave up.

As a consolation prize here's a photo shop of how it would have looked if I'd got the logo off ...
