This is a good video that breaks down how to do a tape out graphic on the top of a car. Nice detailed demonstration that gives you thought process and specifics on how to get the panels laid out with symmetrical placement from front to back . I only wished they showed the endless ribbon technique as part of the demo.

Been searching everywhere on the internet to understand how lowrider patterns are "laid out" but couldn't find anything. This video shows exactly how its done. I am hoping in the future, Armando shows us more elaborate styles as seen on the cars of the lowrider magazine front covers (chicano girls airbrushed in candy, fades, multi-color patterns etc..), so please show us some more advanced stuff. But all-in-all I highly, highly recommend this video.
