How to use Painting Templates

Painting Templates
Download & Paint

Use the software of your choice, like Adobe Photoshop or GIMP, to open one of the PSD templates below. Design the paint of your dreams and let your creativity run wild!

Or, use Paint Builder to design cars in your browser if you’re a Trading Paints Pro member.

Save the Paint File

When you’re ready to see your paint on the car, save a TGA file named car_yourid.tga for Sim-Stamped Number paints or car_num_yourid.tga for Custom Number paints. Help

Save the file to your Documents/iRacing/paint folder, in the corresponding directory of the vehicle (listed below).

Painting Mode
Preview in iRacing UI

See your creation come to life in iRacing’s 3D Car Viewer tool. Inside the iRacing UI, go to Cars under the My Content menu, choose the vehicle you’re painting, and see your work in progress.

Each time you re-save your paint file, the 3D view will update to reflect your changes.


When you’re happy with your creation and you’re ready to share it with the world, upload your completed TGA file to either My Paints (your personal cars) or the Trading Paints Showroom (community showcase where others can race with your creation).

Next time you race, your new paint will appear for you and others in the session!
