      The best birthday present I ever got was a big Craftsman tap and die set that cost my wife a half a week's pay 40 years ago. By far the most use of any tool, ever.

      All of the letters have just one stud. Each letter has a square shank that fits into a square hole in the truck lid to keep its orientation. The extra holes are for the rest of the trunk jewelry.

      The tabs on the individual letters are in different locations on each letter. The holes in the trunk lid are centered exactly on the studs, not the letters.
