These letters fit almost perfectly on the Raptor style grille. I did a small amount of sanding because I'm very picky. They do have to be painted to match the grille. My auto paint store mixed up a perfect color match but achieving the right amount of gloss (maybe it's better to say semi-gloss, satin, or flat) can be difficult. In certain light conditions you can tell that the letters are different. Perhaps it would be better to paint the whole grille so that everything matches. My grille had already been color matched around the outer trim for my platinum white. I didn't want to mask and paint the center section, so I'm leaving it as is.
