The part that's not intuitive (or at least that makes me cringe every time I see it done wrong) is how to align the template with the roof of the car:

1. Align the ground planes in the images of both the template and the car.
2. Scale the template until its height matches the car's.
3. Slide the template forward or backward to align the "0" on the template with the apex of the car's roof.

Maybe it would be over-engineering, but I'd type these instructions, in small letters, right in to the image of the template.
