Help Please

OK...I know there has to be a way to do this but I can't figure it out. I have tried numerous things but nothing that looks good. I can't be the first one to want to do this.

Attached is a picture of a Firefighters Helmet. I want to remove the "A" so I can replace it with my own letter. The glare is giving me fits and I haven't used lighting effects enough to have it down.

If someone could give me some steps I could take to make it look good I would appreciate it.

Interesting project... below is what I came up it and instructions in the screen shoot.

After making everything red, I used patch tool to remove it. Then used masking to only remove where the "A" was. Lastly, did some saturation correction and D&B to even out the dark spots from the patching.

Good luck,

I colored it fist because patch tool can get confused (causes it to blur) when dealing with extreme differences. So I colored fist to make it similar.
