VIN is requested by the Dealer Client

VIN is requested by the dealer client  search from current Index database to see if the file is locally stored
  if locally stored: send the message the file is locally stored
  if not locally stored: send a message to the dealer Client indicating where the client could get the file
    ** Here is where you could enter in other dealerships as part of the network      As a stretch goal I would network in a Peer to Peer relationship. Due to the nature of peer-to-peer file sharing uploading and downloading system, each client will need to act as a server and client all registering with a centralized Dealership server
  Update Index database that the requesting car dealership now has the file
