Decals of the CHEVROLET letters are available from most vendors. They are easy 
to apply; I wouldn't try hand painting. 

For the dash "grill," ash tray, and glove boc, I buffed the high areas, masked 
it off and sprayed the valley's. Then applied the new decal.

that has the
CHEVROLET lettering on it.  How easy is it to re-paint in the letters by hand 
without it looking
non-professional.  Are there any letters/decals that fit onto this strip?  I'm 
not confident in my
ability to paint nice straight-edged letters by hand.  My other option is just 
paint it all one
color, as the depressed lettering can still be read, but it would be nice in a 
contrasting color.
Anyone done this and made it come out looking real trick?
