Import the picture into whatever program you are using (Corel, AI, Inkscape) and use the Bezier or B-spline tool to trace it node by node.

There are many online tutorials for this. If using Corel, look for Doug Green on Youtube. He has amazing and informative videos. Any other programs, just search Youtube for "program" DXF plasma.

Signtorch also has a lot of wonderful tutorials on his forum.

Sorry, it looks like I made a mistake on the file. There is a line on the hood that is inside a closed path. It will fall out. I deleted the line on the new file.

Hey pat I would break up the cut out rather than delete the line. That line is for the sideways hood scoop that the GTX and Roadrunners were famous for. Without that line all you have is a satellite. Only a Mopar fan will understand that one. :lol:
