Vinyl Letters

I need to stick my V8 badges back on the sides of my two front fender assemblies, as well as the vinyl lettering that says Land Rover on the grill surround. Does anybody know how I can make sure the V8 badges go on centered in the same place as the factory put them? I guess I would need to know the dimensions from the badge to the bulkhead, the door sill and the inner part of the fender behind the front wheel. As for the lettering on the grill panel I guess I should just make sure it's centered, straight and go for it? Kerning those letters makes me a bit nervous. Anybody know of a particular method for applying these vinyl letters? Thanks.

Clean the area well, not like LR ever did much precision work on any of these. I think a photo would suffice.

Use some masking tape to layout a box/border and then you can just stick on the decal without worrying it's not centered.

And do yourself a huge favor...skip those hideous raised letters on the grill and go with one of these:

Ha! Figured you'd say that (even in jest). But come on....those silly raised letters do sort of look like they were purchased at Home Depot and stuck on there. The other style at least has some retro character.

Actually that is correct too...I've got one of those generic square lights that came from Autozone or a trailer place or something...it is the damn same thing. And I do hate those square lights, round 95/97 are much better.

I'd ask if you were the "NAS Nazi", but...well, you know . Too soon? It's been since 1945...
