    Land Rover letters

    I have just had some work completed on the bonnet of my 2011 Defender 90. To respray, the LAND ROVER letters had to be removed and they have been placed back a bit wonky and they don't match the original spacing - it all looks a bit wrong! I now want to remove the letters and put them back on in their original positions. Does anyone know where I can find a template to correctly position the individual letters? I have contacted a couple of suppliers but they only supply a kit with all the letters. I want to use the original letters and just need the spacing template. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    Ask someone to go over their letters with a length of greaseproof/opaque paper and a pencil.

    That's the first time I have heard of a Landy with a problem with its kerning :-)

    Thanks Philip - pen and paper might be the next option! I was just hoping to get the placement of the letters as accurate to the original as possible. When you realise the spacing is wrong it really does look odd.

    Did you have the work done by a professional, panel shop, spray painter ? If so, take it back and ask them to re do the letters.
