    Pretty simple.............

    "COMBINE"........
    you have to have all of your shapes right though or
    else you'll wind up with a mess

    Not a group, in fact they can't be a group.

    Select each and all of the black and white objects to be combined. The Combine function should now be enabled. Invoke it. Depending on just what was where, the combined image may be white instead of black. Just change its color.

    Shovelhead thanks for the help that worked good, now for one more question, I want to change the color of the tractor because it is actually going on the black pillar of the car behind the window, I tryed using the fill tool to make the tractor grey but it completely filled the whole image.How do I get only the black lines to be grey..

    if the tractor is a bitmap image, you can drop the white color using the "bitmap color mask" and choosing to hide the color you want dropped (white in this case)

    It looks like you welded it instead of combining. If Shovel's instructions worked for you before, just start over and turn the black to gray before you combine.

    How about editing in Photoshop using the magic wand. Select the white areas and change them to "no color" or transparent. Same to change black to grey. Print on clear material to allow the orange background to show thru.??

    if its a draw object, you need to seperate the trator form the platform. then you need to UNGROUP each speratly.
    on the tractor: ungoup, X color, hairline it. now combine, then you can add an color to it once its its own vector object. need to do same with platform, then put the 2 together and weld....
