Skin Creation - Logo Alignment

is there a sneaky/quicker way to align logos on paint skins over various parts?
The bike I'm creating a skin for has a long screen, that has a number board plastered over it, and some parts overlap w/the fairing. I was wondering if theres a quicker way to align them, or if its just trial and error?

The best way I found is to use the Wireframe.

Keep it activated when saving the skin and use it to make your adjustments. There is no "easy" way of doing it, unfortunately. :'(

By the way, Great looking skin!

As I can't seem to find a template for this bike I don't have access to wireframe sadly. :( So I've just had to keep moving it and resizing it, and rinse and repeat. Takes up a load of time, hence why I asked.

I know it's a Ducati Panigale but which one? I may have the template

Its the WSBK 2017 version by IMT. Only available template I could find was for the Kawak on their IMT database

That's the only one i got as well

Message Blackheart he may be able to help.

If not then i would suggest overlaying a grid onto the skin then use that

The issue is the fact that the screen and the livery are 2 seperate files, and are different sizes, so a direct cut and paste job isn't good enough for it :/ just got to spend some time on the alignment for it really. Nothing that can't be fixed, just seems like a bit of a hassle and an awkward way of doing things.

I've Got it somewhat close now. Its as close as I'm realistically going to get it considering.

Basing it off these liveries which are pretty lovely if I should say so. The more I look at them the more I like them

Sorry, should have explained better. When there isn't a wireframe available, I use a generic grid overlay on both the templates, scale up so they are a similar size and then work from that. It doesn't line up but it certainly helps on sizing

I know it's not as good as the wireframe but when modders wouldn't supply them that the way I used to do it :P

@Blackheart- Thanks mate  ;D
