well.. you could take those off, but it will most likely look hideous..... if im not mistaken, they are attatched just by the double sided tape... but dont wuote me on that.. they might be clipped in with clips, to the door, in which case, you would have to fill in the hole left by the clips, then paint over the filler..... if you dont like the way they look (i assume you have the black ones?) then take em off and paint them, nice, subtle mod that makes it look good, with leaving it on there... imo.. it would look kinda weird if they were taken off....

I checked my catalog, they're held on with double sided tape. Mine aren't black. They're body color. I'm just wondering what they'd look like without them, because I hate them. I prefer them off vehicles.

See:
Mazda6 with door guards..
Mazda6 without door guards.


I like the look much better.

I'm just worried about these, since they're more molded into the body, unlike those of most cars.

well. if its the double sided tape, then it will work the same way a debadge would.. heat it up with a hair dryer, take the fishing line/dental floss... and yank em off...

i know that. i'm not looking for a how-to on how to take them off, i'm wondering if because these are more molded into the body than most, what will it look like?

Yea, a friend of mine just bought one. White too. He loves it.

And definitely. Depending on the Az heat I may be able to pull them off tonight. Otherwise, it'll probably be Memorial Day weekend when I'm in Phoenix and can borrow my friends heat gun.
