Vehicle blueprints/dimension CD'd for signwriting

Hi i,ve just started my own sign writing business after doing this job many years ago.
My old boss used to have a CD/DVD with 1000's of different vehicle drawings including dimensions etc which made it achier to size and cut vinyl's to install on the various vehicles.

Does anyone know what this would be called and where i could find it to purchase or download from?

Any help would be great

Thanks

I've used vehicle templates in the past for graphics but as I have only occasionally done them I just searched out "name of vehicle, elevations, template, sign, graphics" (or something like that) and I've usually found something.
Also, manufacturers usually have PDF brochures and there's often the elevations in those which are still vector and you can extract them.

I recall once searching out one for the Mercedes F1 safety car and that was A bit more difficult but as I recall there are sites that specialise vehicle elevations but I think you have to pay or take up a subscription.

Why did you struggle with that? They just use a 'normal' high performance road car with some added safety features. It's currently an amg gtr, which is a lovely cheap 200k car lol

It was a few years ago but I think it was one of these.
Only place I could find one was a paid template so I ended up making my own.

This was it!
That is the predecessor to the current amg gtr, the amg gt. Likely had most of the issues due to it being really new, I think it was being used in f1 prior to it being easily bought.

I dunno Levi.
It was really hard to get hold of which is why I had to draw it myself.
Makes sense though.

I'd dig it out and post but I'm still under NDA. :(

It fine, I know the work you'd have done would be top notch so no need to show off :p
