Default missing mazda badge

new car is missing the mazda badge, so instead of simply popping the one off the old miata...I thought this might be fun:





i dunno how ill like it, but we'll see.

Paul, over on m.net someone painted a black ring around the edge of those tail lights. Looks REALLY good. I'm actually after a set of them because of it. Would look better with your black panel.

The more I see the flat black rear panel the more I like it, but I don't want everyone thinking I just havent painted it yet.

you mean to hide the grayish clear edge that kinda lights up from the ambient light?

I used a turbo emblem off of a South American VW Bora/Jetta. The Supra turbo emblem matches the Miata script pretty well, but I couldn't find one for cheap and I thought the Porsche emblem is a little played out.

I think it looks a 100 times better without badges. Someone with photoshop skills should take your first pic and cover up the badges. I bet it would look NICE.

Meh, I left mine blank awhile after getting the car back from paint. Just looks plain to me, so now I rock Roadster badging.
