Default How do I paint a symetrical windsheild?

Hi, just need a couple of tips to help me out. The main one is, how do you keep your masking symetrical say for a striping and windsheilds if the windsheild isn't defined on the canopy? Do you mark reference points on the canopy to help with the curves?
Thanks in advance.

Trace your pattern twice for one half of the windshield...then reverse one side and use it to mark the other half...double sided tape will hold it while you mask the edges

Much like folding paper right down the center...both halves are the same
