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.
Robert,that's a good recommendation and I'll do it asap.Thanks! It's difficult to get into others moccasins so the feedback really helps.
