Aerodynamic Streamlining Template Overlay for ZX2?

Am I even close in this overlay? I just scaled it so the bottom of the Template and the top of it met up with the ZX2, which happened to match up with the wheels as well.....

I think the idea is to put the highest point of the car at the highest point of the teardrop.

I think you need to re-scale and reposition that template before proceeding.

Not quite. Rescale and line up the ground planes.

Oops. Forgot to change the photo of the car. All I did was redo the teardrop.

Here's the escort, and a Taurus since I was planning on doing mine anyways.
