Default Rear fill-in'*, picture to explain

Does anyone make rear fill in letters for the back bumper, I think it would be a nice touch, this is where I'm talking about:


Or can they be custom made you think?

Joe.

That looks super sharp, but I was hoping for some vinyl fill ins just incase I ever wanted to remove them. Plus, I dont know how steady my hands would be trying to paint it, kind of a small area, lol. Did you do your'* yourself?

Model master, model paints, makes a chrome silver paint # FS 17178. That might look nice with your chrome trim.

I hand painted the lettering on the rear light bar. I used DupliColor '99 galaxy silver and a small brush and a small pieceof bamboo skewer to "rub" the excess off of mine.That'* been over a year ago and still looks good. Didn;t know about the model paint markers until after I did mine
