Thanks for your reply. I was able to get most of the trunk letters out without breaking them. I need a “D” and an “E”. I was able to pry them out with a putty knife just enough to squirt some WD40 in there and let it soak. Then I gently pried them out. Now, there are these little clips that hold them in place and they all rusted and most of them are broken. Do they make replacements for those? How do I put the letters back in and secure them if I don’t have clips? Thanks again for your help. It’s been an interesting project so far.
