    That sponsor on the side skirt is this one.

    But you would need to adjust the colors.

    Regarding that logo on the front bumper, i only could find this.

    I'm also waiting for an answer...
    Making a directory in showroom and installing a DDS file in the folder is easy enough (at least it worked for other skins), but I have no clue where to put these. Probably a piece of cake when you are used to install these skins, but for me it's a mistery :confused:

    I downloaded the Callaway_C7-GTR3-R_2017 folder which contains another folder Eric Curran and a 0.rcd file.
    The Eric Curran folder holds the altwhelen.mas file

    Other skins I found just use a DDS file that can be placed in the car folder... Why is this (and some other) skin different ?

    my Eric Curran folder sits in the

    Callaway_C7-GTR3-R_2017 folder
    and outside of it is the 0.RCD

    you may have to change the contents of you 0.RCD to this:
    //[[gMa1.002f (c)2016 ]] [[ ]]
    GT3
    {
    Eric Curran
    {
    Team = Callaway Competition
    Component = Callaway_C7-GT3-R_2017
    Skin = altwhelen.mas
    VehFile = CALLAWAYC7_77.VEH **** just add this text overwriting what was there ******
    Description = Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R
    Number = 31
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    the previous text below was changed with the last update
    //CALLAWAY_C7_77.VEH this is now wrong

    i hope this makes sense

    Thanks for helping, I'm trying to figure it out, but it just does not seem to work.
    I have this folder with skins that work (just DDS files) as alternate skins.

    [​IMG]
    As you can see (after changing the wrong line in the 0.rcd file), I added the Eric Curran folder and the 0.rcd
    but the skin did not show. I also tried adding both in the "Installed > vehicles > Callaway_C7-GT3-R_2017" folder, but that did not work either.

    I installed a simple .mas file (from another car/skin) into the vehicles file and that shows not as an alternate skin, but as "another car". Like this:

    [​IMG]
    There is no preview though, but it can be picked in the UI menu, which I feel is easier (and more logical) than going in the tuning menu to choose the ALT skins.

    Tbh: I very much like driving in rF2, but installing extra skins (since there were almost none in the package) is a real pita for me (and I assume a lot of others)... Maybe because we are not into making skins ourseleves. I guess when you are, it all makes sense, but it does not to me... :notworthy:

    Btw: maybe I did not drive enough yet (losing too much time trying to install skins), but it seems that AI only chooses the "extra car" skins, and not the ALT skins, or was that just a coincidence ?

    Thanks, it works now. I even know what went wrong. I tried it the way you are showing, but it did not work, then I tried like the first picture I included in my post. It did not work either. Then I changed the 0.rcd file as how you pointed out, but forgot to move it again to the other map, which is probably (surely) why it did not work.
    I'm good now, thanks again for helping me out. :thumbsup:
