    The skins on your local drive won't show up in the 'paint vehicle' menu.

    If you have installed any skins they will only show up in the sim itself when you're on the track already. And they're only to visible to people that have installed the skins as well.

    Sooo.. the way you paint your car on the iRacing webpage is what the people will see that have not installed your add on skin.


    To change the skins you have to edit (in Photoshop,...) the templates as provided by iRacing and name it according to your member id to show up on your car.

    Hope this helps somewhat.

    Yep - if you want to check out how it looks, run some laps and watch the replay. Also - download the TradingPaints installer - it makes updating skins so much easier.
