How to replace individual letter nameplates?

How does Mercedes install the late model separate character nameplates such as "TURBODIESEL" or "S500"? I got a replacement set from the dealer and the letters are just stuck on a backer sheet. Just peeling them off and sticking them on the body free hand would result in a poor job. Even putting a strip of tape on the face of the letters and then removing the backer sheet won't work since even on the backer sheet the letters don't line up perfect. Does Mercedes use some kind of jig to install the letters correctly?
