    Its usually back to front, so your overlaps aren't against your wind-flow, but I don't think it matters much on a jeep.

    back to front. Overlaps work better this way. Jeeps are easy to knock out.

    the hood i am trying to figure out cause of the camo pattern. If i started at the hood, the side would be a different direction. If i start diagonal on the hood to the headlight... i might have luck with the pattern having unnoticeable difference? I don't understand how to get the pattern to flow in the correct way

    so i'll start back to front... what do you do when you get to the hood then? And how much do i overlap the material?

    the hood is always its own element... no one will fault you for being a slight-bit off on alignment when you've got a gap between your tiles

    You'll never get the hood to match pre-printed. There's a search button here BTW.
