I have a customer wanting me to wrap this van. I have asked them to take pics a couple different times in order to make the templates. Both times the pics come back not right. Does anyone have a template or know where to get one?

The van is 2000 miles away or I would go take pics myself. I have also tried to locate a van local to me to pull dims from. No luck.


I have already tried

http://www.mr-clipart.com/int/cars.php

and a couple other sources I know about.

Thanks
Dan

One of the things I do when looking for pics for templates is do a search for the years that are the same on both Ebay Motors and Auto trader. So far I have been able to find what I need.

In these cases, I'll usually send them a photo like this one, to show them what type of photo I need and the specific measurement I need in order to scale it up. I usually tell them to run the tape measure through the middle of the door handle so I know where to scale it at on my end.
You can adapt this to trucks, trailers or whatever and it usually works well as long as you SHOW them exactly what you need.

Yes, this is what I do as well. The problem was they were not doing what I asked. I have a pic to work from now. Thanks for posting up.

Glad you got your answer, but I just had to say... the wrap will have more value than the van. :ROFLMAO:

The van is a 4x4 van to be used in remote areas to cover races such as the Baja 1000, Vegas to Reno, and other offroad related events. It has some 25,000 dollar sat dish on the roof and a lot of other stuff I have no clue about inside of the van. The van is going to get the crap kicked out of it in the desert. No point in buying a new one. With that said I guess the van will have more value than the wrap. :peace!:
