A Sim Racers guide to working with Templates

This video comes from The Simpit in a different then normal format.  This is a tutorial that should help those new to sim racing or to painting cars learn some basics about car templates.  In this video we use iRacing and a car template downloaded from Trading Paints.  Shaun uses an old copy of Paint Shop Pro and takes you step by step from opening a car template, understanding the different layers and how they work, and some other tips for tackling your first paint job.

This video is a much monger and less edited video then normal from the Simpit.  It is also intended for people who have either never painted a car before and at times will be fairly slow and repetitive to help people really see what it takes to make a complete car paint.

Hey Shaun:

I was hoping to participate in the next race and on Simracing System it says it's at Fuji. Which version of Fuji should I download.

Thanks!

Sean,
I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?

Great review, you've convinced me to buy one of these for my rigsmile

One question, do you think the mounting brackets could be inverted (and swapped left to right) to mount it from the top?
