I have been thinking that this would make a great Ecomodder iPhone app. The user provides a good side view of the car, inputs the ground and the apex of the car, let the app auto-scale the overlay, and then slide the overlay from side-to-side with your fingers.

I doubt there'd be any $ to be made, but it would be good advertising for EM.

*The subject vehicle will have a point of maximum roof camber and that's a fixed point,it's not negotiable.
* The template has its zero-point or maximum roof camber and it's a fixed point and cannot be moved.
* If the two images are scaled such that the height of their max roof camber points are identical and then aligned together,this is the only condition in which the template can function.The template cannot function with any other alignment.
* If the roof of the subject vehicle conflicts with the template,it only indicates the aerodynamic compromise and we'll have to do the best with what we've got to work with.
