You could just space out the letters you already have on there. A few people on here have done it and I think it looks great. I have been meaning to do it but just haven't gotten around to it.

I do think the new letters are larger or wider though.

What is the best way to remove the letters without ruining the paint?

I used a hairdryer to remove the letters and 3M adhesive remover (any parts store) to clean the adhesive. After that I still needed to compound and seal the paint to remove the shadow.

Be careful with the hairdryer. You don't want to damage the paint - just warm the adhesive to remove the letter with a bone tool.

space the letters 3.5 inches apart and you will have the "new" look.
The new logo letters are larger and wider though, so this looks a little odd with the smaller letters. I went slightly more conservative spacing (about 1.5-2" apart) with my existing lettering and it looks pretty amazing.

What part number exactly did you purchase?
