Can't seem to find the pics I'm thinking of, but now my mind is seeing some other options for my truck.

I guess I'm still not seeing how 12° down angle from the template would would ever intersect with 22° to give a point for the trailing edge of the box.
The whole discussion of defining [a sector of circle] by the angle confounds me. It describes the axial angle not the central angle. The axial angle goes from 0° at horizontal to 90° at the vertical. You can't just go to 12° at max camber (the widest/tallest point) and hold it, that gives a straight line. [shrug]

That said, the curves converge to a point if the height is half the width. Taller and you get the Trophenwagen, shorter and you get aerohead's Baby Template.
