Plasti-Dipped Badges

Not sure if anyone here has used Plasti-Dip, but I was wanting to black out my Badges on my CX-3 and was getting quotes around $80 to do it. I did some research and bought 2 cans of this product. I did Black on the ones on back and I did blue on the main grill badge so it would stand out. If anyone is looking to do this, it is really easy and can be peeled off with ease!
the first two were taking in the garage, The last two are outside in the sun.

Looks good. The blue is a decent match.

That's what exactly what I was going for (lack of time as always), but with paint instead of dip.
Was planning on blacken the "Skyactiv" tag, but put the inner text in red (color match).

But the front logo is what I was going for ... if I can find some time between job, wife, daughter and friends O_o'

Thanks CX-ME. Red, the nice thing was it didn't take too long at all to do it (But I understand time must be a premium for you with all that going on ). I actually need to re-do the front one as some peeled off when I was removing the excess. I did Skyactive one on mine as it was all Chrome and Black writing in mine. I will actually be removing the back Mazda logo within 2 weeks once my Evil M logo shows up.

All You need to do on the front is to tape off the area before spraying (only so you don't get your radiator with the spray) I deal with anxiety and I was really nervous when spraying as you do spray it right on the paint as well. However if you spray it heavy enough it peels off with ease.

I will attach some pics of what I did

Product looks to work extremely well. I would have done black on the front as well I think, but that's just personal preference. It looks great.

Not a fan of how it looks but for my opinion, I would either tint the badge with a light tint film or make it matte black with plasti dip

that is what I like about the product, I can peel it and re-color it pretty easy

I went with the blue to see how it would look on the front, wanted to make it stand out proud on the black. I may still go black like the back badges too.

All personal preference, that is why we all do the little mods we do have to add some personality to our cars.

I may order a "STITCH" lettering for my CX as well, then matte that one.

I think the best part of this is that it looks good and also is very cheap to do. You could change it to whatever color you'd like pretty often since it really isn't that expensive.

I had a Mazda 3 for a day and was surprised at all the people that thought of it as a much more expensive vehicle, just goes to show how well Mazdas new design is
