Debadging '07 Mazda B2300?

Thinking about debadging my 2300 but I'm not sure how the decal is held on. Does anyone know if 07 and up have holes behind the badge on the front end by the side mirrors or is it just glue?

There's holes, but they are just alignment holes, but holes none the less.
It's held on with that black foam acrylic tape.

eBay shows they all have pins and oddly enough the "Ranger" badge doesn't.

Damn, so I'd have to weld it and sand it and repaint it and all that crap huh.

Yea, I would think so.
If you want to be really be sure, just remove the plastic inner fender-well and you should be able to easily feel the pegs through the sheet metal.
Here's a few from eBay, they all show pins.

The irony of this is, that if you had a Ford, there would be no holes on the fenders, but then you would have to deal with the holes in the end-gate from the Ford emblem.

Are you sure the ranger emblem on the ford doesn't have holes behind it because I watched some YouTube videos on it and they Hd the holes behind.

I based what I said on what I found on eBay.
I do know that when I was looking for an end-gate for my B3000, they all had holes in them to accommodate the Ford logo, where as Mazda just used a simple sticker _ as you know.

Yeah you're right, the Ford fender logo's have holes too...
