Sure. I also heard from Charles Culver (the original requester) that he
couldn't find thin enough material; I suggested a hobby shop & "burnishing"
tool(s) & material. I also have copied the list for any others that would
like to know.
1. Take the good plate & burnish a soft sheet metal over the numbers &
letters on the plate.
2. Fill in back of "New" plate with body putty filler (as many coats as
necessary-make them thin so they don't crack when drying) until letters &
numbers are filled flush with "unembossed" surface (non-raised area).
3. Back assembly with stiffer metal plate (sheet metal) using glue.
4. Paint to match original plate.
