Eager to see the results - do you DIY the "cut-out" for the grille? If anyone ever develops a pre-cut vinyl / stick-on for this I'd be first to buy.Thanks for the pics it does look sharp.
Yes it is an official Mazda part.
VANDAL - I agree with you, the chrome bits on the car should all be the same finish. I am going to give my front grill the "brushed" look this weekend. I use a Scotchbrite 3M pad. I did it on my Civic I used to have and it came out great. Ill get some pics up when done.
Judging from looks it is most likely affixed using double-sided 3M adhesive (like double sided tape - if you've ever installed a trunk lip spoiler, same thing)It does look sharp. My question is: How strong and heavy is that piece? Would it withstand a gentle thump against a high curbstone or dent in?
If it is 3M VHB tape (likely), most grades in that product line are rated for temperatures down to -35C and as high as +149C.Judging from looks it is most likely affixed using double-sided 3M adhesive (like double sided tape - if you've ever installed a trunk lip spoiler, same thing)
That stuff sticks like a b!tch and no bumps on the road could ever dislodge that. The only instance where it may potentially fall off is when temperature changes (gets cold) the glue loses some of it's bonding capabilities.
I installed both the front and rear bumper trim pieces to my CX3 a few months ago.Anyone on here have it?
Would love to see some pics and find out how big a PITA it is to install?
Thanks in advance!
Those look great - do you have any larger pic versions of those possibly?I installed both the front and rear bumper trim pieces to my CX3 a few months ago.
