Sorry if this is a repeat, but you tried the heat gun right?

Also, I don't remember, but did you break one and see if there was a way to seperate the broken pieces? Might give you an idea on how to do it with a solid unit.

Ok..I'm out of making these things. There are about six in circulation now.

Last time I make them the only thing I changed up was instead of hand painting the letters in... I masking taped the area and cut the letters out, the sprayed about 50 coats on..peeled the letters and presto. Perfect letters.
