Page 4 - Yellow Fog light film, Engine Cover & SP23 Badge
Installed 5/22/05 - On mazda3forums, one of the newest sponsors (Rockblocker) was running an offer to try out their fog light protection film for FREE!! I decided to try it since I was looking at yellow fog light bulbs anyway, and below are pics during the day ( albeit a very dark, and cloudy one). I am happy with the look, even though it took me 3 attempts to get the film looking good ;)
I wanted to be a little creative and decided to paint my engine cover to match my black and red seats. From the time I started taping off, to the time I was done with the clearcoat and silver lettering, it took a good 5 hours. I wasn't counting, but I must have put on a good 20-25 coats of black and red. The paint I used was Krylon Fusion paint in Pepper Red and Gloss Black, and used a silver metallic Sharpie pen for the letters. I am very satisfied with the results aside from a bit of red over spray on the bottom righthand side of the black part. I might eventually respray that area.
I bought the SP23 badge because I thought it looked good, and helps to balance out the Mazda3 badge on the left side of the trunk. As I consider myself a perfectionist, it took me 15 mins to measure, tape off and apply the badge.
