u can pull the badges off rather easy, but then u're stuck with 3 holes for ech badge in the fender/tailgate....unless u're good with bondo and paint, just do somethin with the badges like wowak did or get a body shop to weld and paint the holes...

You only have a Mazda logo in the front, and the flareside bed. They may only get it confused from far away...

yeah. i'm gonna either do it myself. or shell out a couple more bucks to have the body shop do it. they're gonna have to paint it n e way... there's no way i'm gonna try and paint match it myself then spray it.
I'm just gonna have to convince myself it's worth it...

well...i've doneit myself...my friend wanted to shave his edge...and he knew there were holes...

we just shaved the emblems and cleaned the paint under then, got some bondo, filled the holes and sanded and sanded and sanded and sanded to get it all smooth and even...then we went to a local auto parts store that will color match u're factory paint into a spray can....we layed down a primer and then the paint, followed by a clearn...all spray can...and it turned out really good....

its easy to do...just a lot of hassle...

I'd rather hassle than pay, didn't know the DIY even had potential to be flawless. I'll probably go that route. i have the patience if i know it can work out. save me at least $100 i'd gather..
sweet. thanks TO

it's fairly easy...if there are no pegs, some guys I know use either dental floss, or a razor blade (this route requires more caution, lmao...)
