Wink Difficult shapes?

My progress on Dodge is not too fast, I have only some time on weekends recently. Now I'm working on WC6 bodywork. Butelczynski said he would like to learn something here so I'll try to explain few "very technical" things.
I guess most of you noticed that WC6 has quite difficult shapes. So, how to design right side and left side of the body? It's not a Ho-Ha with sharp edged armored plates in which I could just take the measures from blueprints using ruler. Dodge requires a different approach. In this case I need:
1)side view photo
2)piece of cardboard
3)lamp
4)pencil
5)binder clip
6)and scissors, of course

Pictures should explain everything.
When you'll see the picture under cardboard, just outline shapes you need.
Keep in mind that some photos(like the one I used) are not in perfect angles. That means you have to make some corrections while designing parts.

Right side and left side, also with spare wheel place.

Soon I'll have to use some putty to make the curvy edges smooth.

Full speed ahead!
It's October now, so only 2 months left to December 7th. Should be enough time to finish my WC6 from Pearl Harbor.

"Work In Progress" in attachments.

Side steps are attached.
WC6 is taking shape slowly. Nice change after Ho-Ha where I had to spend 5 months to see first shapes of the upper hull.
