Wifey doesn't want me to remove the 6 so I'm gonna try it with it still on. Now, that I've had a good look at it, I'm leaning her way on this. Yes, I know I'm going to get blasted by you all, but there aren't too many ppl around here that will know the diff.

^^If you bought it used, you'll have to use double-sided tape (and I'd recommend the 3M accellerant to help with the bonding) and stick it to a clean surface.

Sounds good. If you are someplace where it is cold, it might be worth your time to heat up the surface with a blow-drier.[/b]

OK this bugs the crap outta me...this blow dryer method! :irate: I mean come on who in this world has an extension cord that damn long to operate one of those things! For the people that don't have outdoor outlets! :nana:

sorry..../end rant :slap: :yesnod:

The adhesive tape that's already on the Atenza badge should work just fine in cold temps. I was in the low 40's when I put my chrome handles on and they are holdin' up great.

That 3M tape is awesome...

If it's new then yeah, the tape will definitely hold. Just make sure you clean the surface of the car before you apply it and make double sure it's EXACTLY where you want it before you press on it. :)

I still have it actually. Problem is, behind it, there seems to be no clear coat? IDK maybe the car was painted previously to my buying. It did need a new trunk.. Possibly bring it to a local body shop and get that cleaned up.

Not having clear on the mazda emblem doesn't sound like a prob. You'll have to put tap on it, anyway.
