Quota Question

I hope my international economic policy students can answer the following:
Sketch a standard supply and demand graph, illustrating the market for imported cars from Japan. Suppose the government set a consumption quota on imported cars from Japan well below the equilibrium quantity. Identify the areas of deadweight loss and the price of imported cars from Japan. Also indicate the area of rent and indicate who (as specifically as possible) the rent goes to.
