Added some lettering to black glass panel

I like my black gloss interior (although I would have preferred wood or even aluminum), I found the panel above the passenger glove box to look a little plain and "bare". I ordered thin, metal lettering online and installed it today.

I think it looks classic, simple and recalls Jag interiors of the past. Happy Friday everyone!

Very classy look. Do you mind sharing the details on where you ordered the letters?

I like it! I very well may do this as well. Like you, I think the gloss panel is just a bit stark looking, so this may be just the thing. Thanks for sharing.

The Jaguar lettering I used above the glove box came with a small Jaguar leaper. I felt bad throwing it away, so I added it to the center of the inside (between front seats). It is not really seen that much, very discreet, but it adds a little silver to my all black interior!

Thank you for the idea, I think I ordered the same thing. My decal came today, the leaper is attached to the JAGUAR decal, looks like on decal.
I am assuming you just used scissors to cut the leaper from the letters?
any install tips before I muck it up?
Thanks

Great!! Yes, I used scissors to cut the leaper away from the letters. Before you apply the lettering or the Jag leaper, lay the emblems on a table or hard surface and really rub over them over the clear film and kind of warm them up.

When you gently pull the clear film off the backing, the lettering and/or the leaper should come with the clear film. If not, reattach/push back down clear film and rub them over the film.

The leaper, I actually had to manually lift a corner (I used a blade) to get it off the backing and onto the film.

Did this help, or confuse the f*ck out of you? LOL
