Reed Rundell has put together these metallic layers for the iRacing.com Ford Fusion Gen 6 car.
Included with template
Color guides/labels: (with included alpha channels)
These layers are for identifying different template parts that have been in question occasionally and also included are corresponding alpha channels, ie: Hood/roof (area cut directly under the roof rails ), decklid, side skirts and roof rails, etc. If you’re not familiar with alpha channels, all of the area guide layers are pixel locked and you can color/copy/fill if you’d like from there.
New, hi resolution Goodyear and Fusion decals, including outside stroke layers that can be hidden. These layers are as close to the original as possible, with just a slight curve difference on the Goodyears and also include a nice clean stroke layer.
Roof cam and Ford/iRacing decals. Place you’re own decals in the same spots and mix it up.
Rear TV Panel camera (In order to see this on the template you will have to delete out the original piece that is included on the parts layer of your original template. I’ve included a seperate/cut original of this layer as the lower layer in the rear camera folder. Pixel select this layer and delete it from the iRacing parts layer.
Jack Markers and arrows
Exhaust “stains” with exhaust plate (plate can be hidden) including “stains” for light and dark colored cars
You’ll find a folder with labeled metallic layers for different areas of the car. I decided to go ahead and separate out these layers as I found that sometimes I may want higher or lower levels of metallics in certain areas of the car. You can adjust them as to your taste by trying different levels of opacity, different attributes, doubling them up with a highlight and a multiply, etc………..Or you can merge them all as one and just use them as a single overlay. There is also ” flake” layers that again can be used many different ways. The way they are in the template are exactly how they are in my example picture. Experiment and enjoy!!!
