Step One: Acquire a VW BusThis is the easy part. The only real requirement is to use a white one. We're off to a strong start.
Step Two: Plan Your DesignAguzzoli first tried to directly match R2D2's design to the bus using a modified papercraft model, but it just didn't look right, so he decided to recreate it from scratch to better fit the model.
Step Three: Uh...be Good at Photoshop?Once R2's look had been finalized, Aguzzoli used CorelDraw and Photoshop to create the design and ready R2 for printing.
Step Four: Printing!Pretty easy step here, just head to your local print shop and get your design printed out on vinyl suitable for wrapping.
Step Five: ApplicationNow all that's left is to apply your newly printed stickers to your van!
Step Six: Bask in the Glory of the Rebel AllianceOkay, so maybe this isn't a DIY project most of us could accomplish, but it's delightful and definitely the droid I'm looking for out on the road.
