I dipped my wheels. Its remarkable how good it looks for the money invested. I personally like a little chrome emblems and the blue engine cover so i wont be doing those. Id probably debadge the skyactive badge it looks kinda odd dipped..

Plasti dip looks nice ! I did my emblems as well but debadged the "skyactiv" because it does look a bit odd and it looks much cleaner without it in my opinion.

This is how mine looked before the tint guy let his alcohol/water mixture run down my hatch and softened the trim glue and it fell off. I decided to just go with the Axela badge this time lol. I like plasti-dip for trying colors on before deciding on permanent paint schemes. But that's just me.

On a warm or hot day use some floss or a fishing line and go behind the badge.. It should come off pretty easy. Then when you remove the badge use a microfiber towel to clean off the remaining adhesive. Some product called goo gone can help with the adhesive removal as well.

Really simple but just to let you know that the "mazda" and the rear mazda emblem have holes behind them. The "skyactiv" and the "3" do not.
