all my mazda and mazda racing stickers on my car have the new "flying mazda logo" on them, so i ordered a new "flying mazda" hood emblem to replace my old one so no old mazda logos will remain on my car, do you guys think that's pretty sweet, or gay?

I did it and it does look cool, nice and low key. But Damn if that little piece of plastic ain't expensive! A new Mazda emblem for a Miata cost me close to 20 bucks! So it's up to you whether or not it's worth it. Personally, my old badge was pitted and kinda crappy looking, so I think it was a pretty good investment. Just make sure you use toothfloss to pry the old one out.

Removing emblems...

What he meant is that you can use a piece of tooth floss to remove the old emblems. You can also use a credit card, but they are connected via a stick backing, so you just need something to pull them loose. The floss sounds like a good way to do this...

Is there a clip holding the old one down as well? Or is it just stick backing?

Is the Miata the only car that has the one that would fit an MX-6 or are there other cars? I want to call around the local auto salvage places.

There's no clip, but there are two plastic posts that fit into two holes in the hood. The new badge has four smaller posts that you just have to snap off. The "wings" on the new badge will cover the holes, but I recommend putting a little putty in the holes just to ensure that no water gets in. As for the Miata emblem, there may be others that would work, but it happens to be about the right size and curve to fit the 6's hood.

I prefer the de-badged look. A bit tougher to make that happen though.
