    I was playing around with GIMP today and thought I would create my own skins for the cars that I race. So far I have done the GT1 Austin Martin DB9.

    Added a dark blue carbon fibre paint, and some XSimulator.net and Simtools logos.

    These are pretty simple but they are at my level of ability :)

    Made the color layer less opaque, the carbon fiber pops out on the Lotus 49 better now

    Awesome, I have been racing iRacing for about 3 years and am in the process of completing my 2 DOF system with 24volt wheelchair motors connected to 2x32 Sabertooth and Kangaroo controllers. Last mentioned have been ordered from the States and my patience is getting the better of me.

    @Mike Stuart sorry for the delay, I finally got around to logging into Trading Paints and checking. It is on trading paints but I do not seem to be able to share it to the showroom. I am searching my systems to find the original gimp files to upload here but have not yet found them, sorry.
