Open your photo editing program bring up each of each of your chosen pictures there should be 10 or 11 of them.

Cut out each individual piece, sides, hood, roof, trunk, top bumpers, glass, grill front of bumper, taillights and front of rear bumper. Save each as you cut it out in an editable format such as .png.

Open a blank 8.5x11" landscape project. place the roof in the center of the area and adjust the size of the roof to about 3" wide.
Front: Center of grill at car height.(Figure A)

Rear: Center of license plate at car height.

The hood trunk, and roof can be tricky. I used a 6' step ladder placed in front of the car for the hood and reached out over the hood while holding the camera lens parellel with the hood. Then take the picture with the timer function. While here take a picture of the top of the bumper.

The trunk was done the same by positioning the ladder being behind the car. Do the top of the rear bumper also.


The roof was taken with the ladder on the side of the car using the same method as before.(Figure B) Take several shots in each position so you don't have to try again.

Take pictures of both windshields from the center front and rear of the car with the camera centered on the height of each.

Now the easy part is done.
First you need good quality pictures of your car.

Car sides: These need to be taken at car height and centered on the length of the car. Best to take in the sun with no shadows on the car. You may have to move the car several times to achieve best results. I took one side picture and used it for both.
