I havent got a setup shot but basically I had my camera mounted on a tripod.
30 second exposure at f8 and iso 100.
I used my 580II and popped some light on each wheel and on the rear of the car from a height of about 2m and on the panels, I then ran behind the car and popped the flash up at the graffiti painting in the background to try to get it lit as I wanted it to play a big part of the shot. It really was a quick dirty shoot as I only had the car for an hour. I processed it in lightroom.

Here is one from last fall. Haven't gotten my Bee's out for awhile and I'm itching for it to get warm.

Had the 1600 I have shooting at the driver front corner, you can see the reflection. Then a 800 shooting at the side toward the rear wheel.

Argh!! This thread is painful.. The whole idea is to help members that are to using flashes on cars, without a setup shot they can't see where anything was positioned to give the effects created with the lighting used!!

Setting up, getting strobe levels correct, was a bit underexposed. Only real adjustments were raising the strobes on the stands a bit to get some light in the engine bay after I got up on the ladder.
