Replacing Roundel with Letters

So I'm looking at taking out my rear roundel and replacing them with BMW written in silver letters.

I'm not here to ask how you guys think it'll look, I was just wondering how to fill in the indented space under the roundel so my letters sit flush with the car, I don't want it to look like some ricer job.

I was hoping for a non permanent way just in case I don't like the look or get bored of it. Anyone have any suggestions for a filler or cover of some sort?

Please don't do this...There is an old E36 in Fullerton that replaced his rear BMW roundel badge, and slapped on a sticker that says "M3"", and god it looks awful.

Sure. It'll look awful.

Take a picture and photoshop it. It just won't flow.

I didn't ask how you guys think it'll look, it's my car let me do what I want to it.

I just want to know how to fill the space indented behind the roundel.

Yeah if possible, I know it's more just wishful thinking.

Obviously no one here has tried what you're attempting (with good reason). Take it to a body shop you trust and solve the mystery already.
