Default Mazda Symbol painted

Well I was too busy today to paint all my interior like I planned, hopefully I can do it tomorrow, but I'm not sure.
Anyway I painted the Mazda symbol that's on my grill, black, and it looks pretty cool. the pictures at night make it look pretty wierd though, the flash makes the glossy symbol way shiny and the dull plastic even more dull.

Looks good but now it sticks out need to paint the whole grille

I personally would have done it in red and freshened the grille up with some paint

you should paint the grille the same stuff you painted the emblem with. Make it flow. Do the same to the bumper and valence.....make it flow really nicely.

Yea I don't think night does it justice but you're both right. I was thinking red, but I'm going to paint the middle of my bumper red the smooth part so I think it would've been overkill. however if I paint my whole grill that black, maybe the red logo would look good. we'll see, I'll paint my grill black tomorrow, and then I'll see how it looks with the mazda logo matching.

But then he would need to freshen up the bumper

paint the radiator black so it doesn't stand out.

^it doesn't at all, you can only see it at that angle on a camera with a flash. lol
but I may try that...

I think if the top and bottom of the bumper, and the grill are all black, then the middle of the bumper and the mazda logo are red, it'd be pretty sick.
and then the top of the rear bumper could be black, with the bottom red:

Are you thinking about swapping out those little mirrors for the newer style like mine?

yea let me know man cause know that you said something, those things are ugly as hell. it'd be really cool to wire them for electric, I'm sure that would be pretty easy, compared to windows/locks.
