This pinch twist gets pushed between and through the 6 finger/4 finger bubble at the front of the Car.

You then need a 2 finger bubble and then another 1.5 finger pinch twist to push through the other
6 finger/4 finger bubble section.

Then another 6/7 finger bubble to cover the other front wheel and this gets twisted into the front door section pinch twist.

If you have some of the 160 left I like to have a 3 finger bubble going underneath the Car to the other front door section pinch twist.
This helps to keep the Car sitting level as sometimes the front and rear sections of the Car face down slightly.

This was a tricky one to explain, hopefully your Car looks a little like this?

I then inflated a 350 clear to 4 fingers and put into the top section of the car to look like windows.

The rear pinch twists I prefer horizontal but you might like to keep them vertical, the choice is yours.

I then made the Car from 350's and 260's to see what it looked like.
The clear was a 646 and the wheels made from 5" rounds.
