DISCOVERY letters for DII hood, instead of LANDROVER?

hey all...

i'm enamored with the UK version of LR3/4 which says DISCOVERY in big chunky letters on the hood. i want that.

i hopped on ebay and ordered the 2005-2015 letters, but it's clear that they're designed for a much more curved hood. i'm fairly sure that they're actually for 2017+ US discovery model.

rather than throwing another $16 into the cheap inaccurate abyss of china, has anybody done this? if so, can you direct me to the parts source?
i'd also like to upgrade the SE7 letters on my quarter panels to the bigger chunkier 2004 style, but i can only find them in silver on ebay.
while i'm at it, the rear door needs to be done too...

i hope that somebody else has crossed this bridge?

FWIW, the 2003 has the thick/raised decal letters, not the flush vinyl like older discoveries.. but the 2004 has friggin burly letters maybe 5-6mm thick.

cheers

+1 on this request—highly interested in the same front-hood badging.

i have found some of them here:
https://www.powerfuluk.com/vehicles/...lettering.html

but they don't have everything i need in matte black

i've also considered trying these:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-DISCO...912710dd051d21

but i'm not sure if they're going to be correctly sized for the hood. obviously i would have to manually apply and space them...

ArmyRover which lettering kit did you use and can you share some pics?

thinking about snagging these:
https://www.amazon.com/Proper-Spec-D.../dp/B07D49SV6D

worst part is trying to find the high relief SE7 letters for the side. I can only find one seller on the entire internet who has them, and only has them in brunel metallic at $51 each.
i'll be damned if i'm paying north of $100 for the wrong color, as i don't know how well painting them would do.

well.. the "3D car stickers for discovery2/3/4..." arrived yesterday.

exact same garbage i got from ebay, the outermost letters are significantly skewed/slanted to match (what i'm assuming is) the hood line from the discovery 5.

my "Proper Spec Land Rover Discovery 3/4" lettering kit sold by Lucky8 seems much better.

the photo below compares the disco5 lettering to the "Proper Spec" lettering
DISCOVERY letters for DII hood, instead of LANDROVER?-img_8026.jpg

While the template containing the Proper Spec lettering is much less precise and i wouldn't consider using it on an LR3... i don't think i could use it on a d2 anyway.

i'll fit them this weekend and post pics... i'm assuming somebody cares
