95 e300d trunk emblem help

Had the deck lid repainted and I want to reattach the E 300D and DIESEL emblems where they belong. I have the factory service manual page (FSM task #88.505) that shows placement. What it doesn't show is the space between letters.

Would someone please be able to take pictures of their trunk emblems next to a ruler starting at the side edge and the bottom edge of the trunk (right and left side of trunk lid)?

THANKS!

I meant to take pictures BEFORE I dropped it off at the body shop...

no prob

Zulfiqar, you are one of the most helpful people on the Diesel Forum. Break in any time.

My daughter did some anagrams and thought LIME SEED would look much better. She turned the 3 sideways.

I'm sure MB still sells model badge sets.

I've always wondered if there's a jig to get them lined up properly, particularly the later individual characters. Maybe you can use tile spacers.

We don't need no stikin' jig, I mean badges

Just use blue painter's masking tape, and tape a wood paint stir stick in the appropriate position on the trunk lid per Section 88. Press the letters/numbers in to place one at a time.

I can photo two E300 trunks, but not until Friday.

I don't know. The original got broken somehow and my buddy with an 87 300d gave me this extra. I can't even remember how the original clear one got broken. I never remember to get a clear one when i'm buying parts or at the boneyard. Someday.
