Got my hood letters from fordparts.com and it arrived last friday. It comes with a template and was easy to apply.

Welcome to the Forum Neil.:wave:
Just thought I'd let you know that Malagant hasn't been on the Forum since September 24, 2014.

What he was talking about wasn't really a "template"; the OEM letters come on a sticky piece of plastic, where they're properly spaced and aligned, so you just pull off the backing and stick them on. Without that, you're going to have harder time applying them.

If you look at the picture above, and look at where the L and O align with the letters of the Ford emblem, you can figure out the distance between them, and then just center it top to bottom. Or find one locally and measure, or get a body shop or vinyl wrap/sign installer to put them on.

They come with 2 sided tape on them. You can install them yourself, no need to pay someone.......

Hello summer 22, it doesn't have any adhesive at the back of each letter and I'm sure this is a used condition as I notice it. I'll try to fix this on my own to save money

By the time you deal with all of that, you'd probably be better off just buying a new set. You can find it online under $100, and install it yourself, for probably the same or close to what you'd end up paying an installer.

I'd get the Ebay ones for $12.99! But they're not stock for my 98 XLT so will pass, LOL
I went with cheap after markets and they did not adhere well and letters came off. I ended up paying for the OEM factory and they are far superior.

Do they sell individual letters? I just need the "E" as half of it was torn off.
