This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
I'm not sure if many people will be interested in this, but when jms uploaded the mesh for the Mercialago, I just died and had to create a Tony Stewart recolor of it. Yes, this is my first recolor, but I think I did decently well on it. Yes, Tony Stewart has this car, and yes the recolor includes the Europlate.

Basically, this is a bright orange recolor of jms's Mercialago, which was posted right here on MTS2. I tried to get ingame shots that looked similar to the pictures that I had available, but alas, I am still working on figuring out how to use windowed play mode. :-)

Also, I couldn't figure out how to recolor the rims, so if anyone knows how, by all means tell me, so I can update the recolor to include those $15,000 beauties. The car was worked on at Unique Autosports, and included a plate in the rear that said that, but I didn't include that in the recolor because I fear copyright issues.

I'm sorry for the poor screenshots, it really does look good ingame! Anyway, enjoy!

And make sure to hit that thanks button for jms and me. But mostly jms, as that's where all the hard work is!

Default Copyright?, of course I copied it right...
Hmmm, very nicely done - thanks for sharing shame we didn't get the rear plate thou' - but understood, copyright issues are a complete minefield.

Some people would see it as a tribute, others as a rip-off and *some copyright lawyers as a nice bit of easy revenue* - best left alone methinks...

* I will just add 'Alledgedly...' *

To all, of the very talented MTS-2 creative types - my sincere thanks for taking the time to create/upload/share...

>DocFX: lol, yeah. I'm sure somewhere a crak legal team is going to drop whatever they are doing to sue That20issmokin.

In short, unless you sell this for profit you wont get into any trouble smokin'. So just make sure no skank paysites get it & you would be fine.

It makes me laugh when people vilify lawyers. Funny how appreciative first time arrestees are when their Barrister comes down to the cells at 4am to sort them out because they are crying like childrem at the staff sgt.

Well, I was also afraid that the text would end up looking really bad in game. I knew the Europlate would work, but the Unique Autosports plate has a whole lot smaller writing.

This looks great and it's perfect for my ladies, Good work. As for windowed mode, you first right click on the launcher symble and choose properties. When you see the path put a space at the end and write -w and select apply. if you have window7 then do give adminitrator permission. There you'll get window mode. It is easy. :)
