Installed my raised rear letters. Everything went well until I noticed my U is slightly crooked.

How can I remove it and reapply????

Remove it with dental floss. Clean it and the car with tar remover. Not certain on the reapplication... there is aggressive thin double sided sticky tape available at craft stores (like Michael's or Hobby Lobby) or use automotive grade trim adhesive from a autozone like store.

My first thoughts were "your U isn't supposed to be straight".

If you had left it crooked it would have looked more British.
Exactly. Look how wonderfully centered my nose Lotus Badge was installed.

**Friday 4:59pm in Hethel**

"HEY NIGEL! Let's go down to da pub"...

"Ah, Bloody hell, I better just slap this nose badge on here"

I love it. :D

LOL...sorry :D

Just take a string and hold it in the center of each of your backup lights so it makes a line across the letters. If they are all relative to the string and each other, you are fine. :D

My nose badge is straight but the clear coat is flaking off of it. I took the remainder off with my fingernail. Tough stuff. :rolleyes:

Get a hair dryer to soften up the adhesive and just straighten it without having to remove it. I removed my entir "Boxster S" this way. Came out perfect.
