    I want to lay vinyl over my emblems/badges on my 2012 Mazda3 skyactive.. I wanted to see if anyone had a file for this or if anyone knows the perfect dimensions to the emblems. I have a Cricut maker that could make this job so easy and clean.. I feel like there has to be someone else out there...

    Hi! I have a Mazda 3 sedan and i wanna make it look amazing but with the color and a lot of the discoloration the outside is looking very unappealing and I am looking into wrapping it a glossy black. Like the whole entire car and I am wondering how much money that would take if anyone could me...

    Hello. I installed the front lip after some polish and glaze. It looks pretty good. The side sills need painted of course. However, I was thinking about having a wrap shop put a gloss black vinyl on the side sills and the lower rear matte black portion of the rear bumper so it all matches...

    Hey guys, has anyone wrapped the matte plastic part of the rear bumper of the hatch themselves? I want to wrap it matte black, but a shop said the wrap wouldn't stick to the plastic properly. I've seen several people with the wrap. I just want to know how has it been holding up over the years...

    I'm looking to wrap the silver/aluminum vent borders. I don't want to break any clips but I would like to wrap it the right way by removing the piece and wrapping it away from the rest of the vent. Is there a way to do this or is it manufactured as part of the entire vent assembly?

    I know I've seen a lot of Mazda 3's on here with their roof wrapped gloss black. Can anyone tell me if the vinyl scratches easily or gets noticeable swirl marks after awhile. I'm considering wrapping my roof in gloss black but am worried about how easily it may scratch or look scratched. Any...

    Hi All, Just wanted to provide this link really quick. I know a lot of you like to do wraps and what not, and sometimes what we had in our mind didn't quite turn out the way we anticipated it would. I found this sample book on Amazon and ordered it. It's absolutely fantastic so you can compare...

    What do yall think about a full vinyl wrap? I have a thing for matte army green, but I also like black and possibly blue.

    Got my hands on some 4D CF vinyl wrap from bluebatmobile! So excited! I wanted to redo my old 3M 1080 matte CF wrap that was on my pillars because for 1, I didn't take care of it so the sun cracked it away and 2, anybody with matte vinyl wrap knows you can't just run wax over it. Well the wax...

    I bought a 10 piece set for the outside pillars. I love it. Now that I know how easy it is to work with, I am going to buy a roll and in the spring I am going to wrap the chrome around the grille. These pieces were laser precut. I want it all completely wrapped so that is also why I am going...

    Hi everyone. I'm new here, and about to become a owner of a 2015 Mazda 3 Sport GT soon. I want to recreate the look of the Clubsport concept in red, that Mazda has shown off at some car shows. After some research (no thanks to Mazda.ca), I figured out pretty much all the exterior addons can...

    So after swapping out for a different headunit, it was BEGGING to be CF wrapped lol. So let me start off with the old headunit: Here we have the rest of the pictures I snapped: This vinyl job was probably the least amount of effort involved. I love the looks of it!

    I've noticed a juddering or slipping gear type noise from my sunroof from opening it to the vent position. It's been rubbing on the roof wrap and the slipping is what causes the noise. Clean the gasket around the sunroof and the vinyl in the opening and the sound goes away. It's made more noises...

    What is the best way to go about vinyl wrapping around the climate controls? I have everything thing done except for around the climat controls, the vents and around the speedometer

    Has anybody with the graphite mica vinyl wrapped their roof? Thinking about doing it but not sure if it will look good.
