  1. First Big Boy Purchase

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I've been lurking for a while but i guess its time to share with the internet. I had a 2002 Nissan maxima that I've been driving since senior year in high school from 2012 - February 2019. It got totaled because some idiots decided to stop in the left lane of the highway. March 2019 I bought a...
  2. What else?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Im not one to 'modify' anything but I thought it was time I done something to my 2015 Mazda 3 Astina. Plastidip the chrome to black (Because it was super cheap) and added the pinstripe. Overall I think it turned out quite nicely, What are your thoughts? I do however notice that the plastidip...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior

  5. Anyone Plastidip the chrome window strips?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Anyone? I've tried twice now and failed miserably both times. I cannot find a way to stick the tape without it causing the dip to peel up from the chrome strip when I remove it. It ends up with such rough uneven edges. But I really want that chrome strip gone.

    Got around to plastidipping my rims anthracite grey. Still need to do a layer of the glossifier but looks good for now.
  7. Removing plastidip from hard to reach places

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hi does anyone know of a way to remove plastidip from the seams/cracks in between body panels? I plastidipped the chrome part on my front grille but didn't think and masked as close to the chrome part as possible, so now I don't have any overspray that I can grab and peel off.
  8. Mod time tonight!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Black chrome. Finally summed up the courage to mask off the grille trim and spray on DupliColor Shadow. I'm in love with the results, did the badge too. Also Dipped the chin while I was at it. What do you think? I'll get some daylights up tomorrow.
