Did the letters finally, and you can reuse the old ones just be careful when you take them off. A blow dryer or heat gun is a definite must. It was a pain to peel off the old Double side tape off the letters,:( but the finished product is so much better looking. Thanks Bill (Snoop Dog) for the Photo w measurements. :D

Your welcome. Mine were on too long to reuse. The new set was only $31 though.

I first saw the measurements on Stangs in a post by Bonedoc. I think a lot of people used those measurements.

The 3M tape adheres very well just took a while to trim properly for the letters. At least I won't have to worry about them coming off.:)

Nothing to it, Removing the left over adhesive with GOO GONE from the left side took some wiping several times, But about $7.00 at Wally World for tape and Adhesive remover and thats it. Be patient everyone heating and removing the letters gradually, so you don't bend them and ruin em.:cool:

This is the 2007 Prototype, of course the brake light is changed, compared to the production model, The lettering looks so much better like this I think.:)

Do the OEM letters use the same 3M doublesided tape as you used? I just don't want something thats too thick.
