crazy larry lay out half of it,get it like you want it, and copy that onto a piece of paper, flip it over and you have an instant mirror image..... use whats called a pounce wheel to perforate the paper pattern,(i use my wifes sewing pattern deally) and dust with chalk, remove paper, and lay some tape......

50Windsor well in my opinion i would take tire chalk and since you have a hood scoop draw a straight line off of that and then start taking deminsions from a certain point on your sketch. Just an idea

all fired up measure very carefully from side to side, also try to layout one side then make a pattern and transfer it to the other side.

How To Lay Out Custom Paint Designs

Was wondering if anyone could give some advice on how to lay out designs. For example. I was painting the hood of a Dodge Shadow and it had a small hood scoop that was off center. I thought it would be nice to accent the scoop with some red. I laid it out by eye and it came out pretty good. I did notice though that on each side of the scoop each accent started a bit farther away from the hood. Also one accent had a bit more thickness to it. Can anyone share their methods of how to lay things out? I like to sit for a while, do some rough sketches and then once I get a general layout I need a way to make sure everything is even. Thanks for the help.
