    Here I will add my personal and public skins.

    First up are a couple of my private league skins, Im no superstar skinner but I like to paint them myself and base them on real life paintjobs.

    79 Dodge based on Elliot Sadlers 09 Best buy ride.

    79 Dodge based on Tony Stewarts 09 Burger King ride (tho he has not used it yet this season)


    Mello Yello


    Of course they are a complete set with Hauler, Pitbox, Driver cards ect ect. More will be added in time once I get around to finishing em.

    The Burger King skin is nicknamed "Fast food" lol. Im currently working on a Subway skin loosely based on a Carl Edwards skin.

    ARCA Skinning Guide

    Car viewer


    When skinning save all files as a .jpeg to view them in the viewer, Once you are done save a .DDS with a setting of DXT5 ARGB 8 bpp | interpolated alpha

    Save files as

    Vehicle file
    Driver suit
    Dashboard logo
    Driver Card
    XXCARD.tga <----Driver card must be saved as a .tga not a .dds file

    *XX denotes car number

    A sample of my vehicle file, Copy one of the original .veh files for whatever car make you are using and edit the data.

    DefaultLivery="79.dds"< ---- change this to match your car skin file
    Cameras=ARCA_cams.cam // Defaults to cams.cfg in UserData directory
    HeadPhysics=ARCA_headphysics.ini // Affects driver eyepoint only
    //////////////////////////TEAM HISTORY AND INFORMATION///////////////////////////////////////////

    Driver="G Hickling"
    Description="#79 Rizzla Racing Dodge"
    Engine="350 ci"
    FullTeamName="#79 Gareth Hickling"
    Category="ARCA RE/MAX Series 2007"

    Also dont forget to change the name of the .veh file to match your car number.

    Please be aware the server must have the skin installed for it to be used online without mismatches.

    Gareth, just a personnal favoure: I do not know how to paint a car, can you take my car from "race sims" and introduce it in the set (if it exists and my no. is available)?. Thx a lot.

    There is no skinpack at the moment, we are just running the standard skins currently. Hopefully we will have a skinpack sorted in the future for leagues and alike! :)

    Skinpack: Reserved numbers

    As a few would like to run custom skins for our ARCA racing I suggest before we all go painting we should reserve a number for your ride and the skinpack.
    If you do not intend on running a custom skin there will be no need for you to select car or number but you can reserve a standard car if you so wish.
    Please request a number here and I will add it to the list. No duplicates please :)

    Templates and viewer are in the download section here at RD.
    More info to come on a skinpack soon!
