I don't know how you tried to paint the letters but you mentioned that they are raised. I've done this type by painting the area that the letters are in on the gate and then use 1/16th fine line tape and outline the letters, then mask up the inside of the letters with regular body masking tape and shoot the rest of the tailgate body color. Without a stencil, that to me has always been the easiest way to do it...

This may be what's on Brian's how to video...didn't look at it yet...I suppose I should but I've already got this post written...It was snowing the other day, today it's wet raining and miserable and I'm taking a lazy day off...LOL...I'll look at the video later...LOL.
