I have scoured the internet and cannot find the correct spacing for the SHELBY decklid lettering on a supersnake. I put on the wide stripe and would like to us that spacing instead of the standard Ford spacing. I have the factory spacing and the JLT template, however the template is for 07-09 and is slightly off.

I could do the math based on the edges on the stripe but would prefer to have the correct measurements.

Thanks!

I can't help you with the spacing, but I never realized SAI changed the trunk letter spacing on the SS conversions, learn something new every day.

Yeah subtle difference, but lines the H and L up with the stripe.

So the supersnake letters are 5 3/8" on center. The Ford spacing is a bit wider. I placed the H and B as in the photo then measured center to center, divide by 3 and voila. I think I placed the letters slightly high but not changing that.

When I purchased the lettering for mine, it came on a stickyback template.  I simply centered the template against the trunk and pressed the letters down.  I needed to do some fine straightening, but the results are similar to what you posted
