RRC Letters Measurement/Placement

Can anyone help me out with these questions? I bought the individual letters from roverclassic.com and need to apply them. I have some notes but the remaining questions are:


1) How far apart is each letter (i.e. how much space from the bottom right of the "R" to the bottom left of the "A"?

2) Is the center of the space between "RANGE" and "ROVER" perfectly centered on the tailgate and hood?

Appreciate any help or advice.

distance from the bottom of the back leg of the R to the front leading edge of the A is an inch and an 1/8th. This is on a 94 lwb with the factory 3d letters. The word Range is closer to the center line of the hood than the word Rover by about 3/16ths

Are you looking for help with COUNTY or Classic ?
I have three county's I could measure but you have been posting for the Classic badge and none of mine have that later badge.
