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.
After seeing this amazing classic car, and reading the comments, someone wanted to see this in black, as did I. I couldnt figure out how to recolor the red part, so I couldn't make it all black, sorry.

Fresh Prince, if it wern't for him, this place would be lacking alot of great cars and other vehicles.
SimPE, I couldnt do it without that useful program

Nice job! If you want to recolor the red runningboards, the convertable top and the fenders, you have to recolor the texture called "vehiclehatchbacknew-[fresh-prince-15.8.2008-141c1e]-misc_txtr_512x512.png". You apparently only extracted one of the three textures needed to recolor the entire car. The texture you extracted only colors the main body.

Nice job, like the recolor alot!

Yes, the red part is not recolorable, I might be able to make it recolorable though, I'll see what I can do.

Keep up the good work! :D

Hey F-P, you can add a Material Override in your file and link it to the object group to have that group recolourable
