And we do this by projecting curves onto a surface. So let me show you how this works. I have got my scooter here, and actually, let's go into my Side View. And I am going to go into my layers here, and I am going to hit V on Reference, and then also let's go ahead and hit R, make sure that that is just Reference.

So we are going to make sure that these are set to V and R for that Reference layer. And what I want to do is actually draw -- there some vent holes here. Let's go ahead and turn on XRay. If we zoom in here, there is actually some vent holes in this fender. So this particular fender here is supposed to have a couple of little slots in there to vent the heat from the engine. So if I wanted to, I could actually make this live and then try and draw that curve on the surface.
