I usually make a final unwrap in channel 1, then i have the front projection on channel two and the side projection on channel 3.
I use one material with a mix in the diffuse-slot. Mixiing the front pic and the side pic. The actually mixing is controlled by a vertex color material.
Then i just assign the vertexcolors on the mesh to get the blending i want between the projected images. When i feel satisfied, i render to texture into channel 1 and take it into photoshop to finalize it and tweaking and shit.

I sometimes use broadly that method for fixing seams on hand-painted textures (UV 2 the polys either side of the seam and bake the texture, clone-stamp out the seam in PS, then bake back to UV 1). Nowadays I usually use Zbrush for the projections rather than Max, but it's fundamentally the same technique.
