blacked out evil M on the back
blacked out front stock emblem
remove the "mazda6" emblem (as long as there will be no holes
remove the dealers logo
black out the emblems on the center caps
Maybe paint the stock wheels black or gunmetal in the summer.

Like I said.. keep it clean my friend...
I have tint since the pictures were taken.. And I dipped emblems and wheels..

I got a quick question. I have a 2012 fireglow red 6 and was wondering if their is a tutorial on the emblem and wheel dipping. Like that explains what to do, where to dip, etc, etc. Lol pardon my ignorance, but I just saw this topic and pictures and thought that the black emblems/tires look really good.

There is a DIY on refinishing wheels in the 1st gen interior/exterior section of the how-to section.

Plasti dip can be done with rear emblems left on the car. The one in the front grille should come off. Search around the 2nd gen section for details on how to remove it.
