Default Wanted: Vectors of Mini stuff...

I'm trying to get a design idea for where I'm going with the Mini, and unfortunately, I can't plug my printer into my ear and print out what's on my mind...

I'm hoping that someone out there might have a simple vectorized version of some stuff so I can start to do some editing on it. Here's what I need:
  • R50 door panels
  • R50 Dash (center speedo - no nav, and without the steering wheel would be awesome!)
  • GP Rear seat/ cargo area (both side and straight on view)
  • R50 Mini front, side, and rear views
  • R53 Aero skirts
  • GP Rear Bumper

I'm trying to do these my self, but I'm failing miserably, so if anyone's got them done already or could do it real quick, that'd be sweet! I've attached some images to use for some of them.

Thanks a ton guys!

You sure you want/need vector art (for Adobe Illustrator) of all those parts? That might be hard to come by.

However, if that's what you really want/need, you could always make your own. There are a few ways you could do it... the long way is to open a jpg in Illustrator then simply trace over it creating the vector art you need. It's probably best to have the jpg on its own locked layer when doing this.

The shorter and easier way would be to use Live Trace in Illustrator. I don't know if CS2 has this included or not, but, CS3 does. You can find it from the top menus: Object -> Live Trace. You will probably need to play around with the options.

Here's a vector of the straight on view of the Recaro seat: http://chipgrafx.com/mini/_media/recaro.eps.zip

Sweet! Thanks Chip! I'll do the rest myself now that I have a better idea as to what I'm doing...
