    Since I reinstalled windows and forgot to backup all my old Photoshop skin template psd files, I decided to start from scratch. I made a couple of Takedown cars...

    Beautiful work, mate. I especially love the detail put into the cockpit decals (something I still don't bother myself to do with my liveries yet :p)

    Yeah, I cover the entire dash with my own carbon fiber texture that I make from scratch, then I apply dark decals to the dash since the inside of the car is supposed to look much darker.

    The only sucky part is... I designed the skins, but my steering wheel broke over a month ago, so I can't drive the car at all. In the movie I made, I let the ai drive the car for me.

    I'm currently looking to buy a cheap wheel. I kind of prefer 90 degree wheels, so I was thinking of picking up an old Logitech Driving Force Pro on ebay. I almost won an auction for one that was $26 and free shipping, but somebody out bid me at the last 30 seconds. I'm going to keep trying.

    Hells yeah! That sounds like fun. I hope there are truck templates available.

    There's an auction ending in 5 min for a Logitech Driving Force Pro for $44.81. I'm going to do a max bid of $54.81 for it during the last minute. Hopefully I'll win it. Fingers crossed.

    Crap, during the last 9 seconds I was out bid. It sold to somebody else for $55.81. I tried to rush bid, but I couldn't do it fast enough. Right when I hit the "Bid" button the page refreshed and said "SOLD". This keeps happening to me. Grrr. I should have placed my first bid during the last 10 seconds.

    Finally. I managed to buy a Logitech Driving Force Pro for $40 on eBay. Arrives in a couple of days.

    Funny thing... I was checking on eBay for a DFP and couldn't find any worth bidding on, then about a minute later I refreshed the page and suddenly there was a new listing for a DFP with a "Buy it now" price of $40. I read the description fast to make sure it was in good condition, then I threw it in my cart and checked out about 2 seconds later. I think I was the only guy on the planet that ever had the chance to view the listing.

    It's going to be nice having a steering wheel again. The crashes are I miss the most.

    Could a moderator please rename this thread to be called "Custom "Takedown" skins for GSC2012" and move it into the "GSC Mods" section. Somebody moved my other car skin thread there, so I just figured this thread should be there with it. Thanks.
