3. Dryfit Letters

Insert Letters: Take letters in order of number marked on the back and press into drilled holes (do NOT apply adhesive yet and do not force studs into holes).

Adjust: If letters do not press easily into holes, open holes (make hole larger with bit) until letters can be set straight.

6. Final Adjustment

Adjust & Set: Stand back and view letters at a distance. Hand adjust letters straight by loosening tape and repositioning as needed. Once letters are straight, firmly press tape back onto wall. Secure with more tape if needed. Allow adhesive to set (set time may vary based on climate). When set, remove tape from letters. If studs start pulling out of holes, re-tape until adhesive is set. Clean letter faces as needed.
