    Ok so I painted the wheel cladding

    LIke I said, it's dependent on the incident light. I guess the pearl paint is a b**** to match on plastic . The pearl on the cladding glistens just like the pearl on the metal..Base ,pearl and clear... Done at a Hot Rod custom body shop. Their paint work is flawless... Well at least to...

    Ok so I painted the wheel cladding

    I agree about the "flow" Tell it to Ford also about the F150... Poor choice by Mazda. It looks like they tried to make it look like a Mini.. Then again opinions are like a-holes, everybody's got one... ;^) If you read the other posts, matching the metal and plastic body parts sometimes doesn't...

    Ok so I painted the wheel cladding

    Looks good. Would look even better if they'd matched the color It's the photograph.. Ironically the paint from Mazda does not match up that well. In shade or low light you can see the plastic painted parts are just a touch off. Bumper covers mainly. They just don't sparkle like the metal...

    Ok so I painted the wheel cladding

    Did they remove the cladding to paint it or painted on the car? I think they removed the cladding as I can not see any over spray anywhere. m

    Ok so I painted the wheel cladding

    I love Love LOVE this auto and the wheel cladding was just a bit too much.. Had a hotrod body shop paint the cladding white and also took the liberty to paint the brake calipers RED. The look of the car looks a bit more grounded with the bold black just on the bottom. That's just me....YMMV... mitch

    I joined the Mazda CX-30 owners club

    I kinda like how the CX-30 is a bit taller. I don't flop in the seat like my previous Civic Coupe. I checked fuel mileage on my first tank...29.6 mpg!!! Not too shabby. Let's see what the average of a few tanks is. I'm not a boy racer so I expect it to be reasonable. mitch

    I joined the Mazda CX-30 owners club

    I do like that render but the reality of making the cladding match seems like it would be quite difficult. I don't think it would be any harder than painting a plastic bumper cover. Use the same Pearl paint and it would look good. Actually, back to the idea of covering the cladding...What...

    They are car dealers, that's what they do...Try to take as much money out of your wallet as possible with no regrets.. I called and emailed all the local mazda dealers and wanted an OTD price for a white CX30 select THAT WEEK. Went back and forth and Westshore came in with the best price OTD...

    On the CX30 forum there is a photoshopped image of a red one with painted cladding. Also Superstreet has a lowered CX30 with painted cladding... https://tinyurl.com/y5r6nkz5 https://tinyurl.com/y4zqeymj The trick is to find a good bodyshop/painter to do the deed.

    I joined the Mazda CX-30 owners club

    I picked up my 2020 Select in White with black/blue interior last week. It was the end of the month/end of the quarter and with the 2021's on the lot they were willing to deal. Got about $1500 off as a first time Mazda owner (prev Honda/Toyota guy) and 0% for 60 mos. They then promptly added the...
