I have done no stitching, but maybe I have just been lucky. The plugin I mentioned might do the stitching when you export the file, if that is even possible.
I would love to see what the images of the Cherokee look like? Would be much appreciated if you have time to post them.

Much appreciated. There's an interesting dip right behind the bumper, I wonder if my skid plates are helping even that out.

Don't forget that the 3D models i have, have not been edited yet to fix the "solid" wheels and flat under belly. So technically this rendering is only somewhat accurate unless you have wheel covers and under belly pan

I'm glad somebody is following. I am very interested in what people can achieve with this software and would love to see some other's experiences. BTW don't just watch the thread if your interested. Get the software us it. It is FREE, but come august 31'st it will be unavailable (unless you have an extra $15,000 laying around). So use it while you can and post your results.

My reason for having the Cherokee model is because that is what my brother drives. He always complains about how bad his gas mileage is but refuses to do anything about it. I got into Paint and presented him with a way to improve his gas mileage (image below), but he is not willing to hurt the look of his vehicle.
